Not all instructors can teach everything on the list above. Beginner Instructors can teach everything in the ‘beginner content’. Intermediate and advanced instructors may have certain restrictions but will probably be able to give you advice on how to do something. Check with the committee that what you want to learn in the intermediate and advanced content sections can be taught by someone.
