Heterogeneity of participants from different aspects is one of the problems faced by organizers of educational courses in the field of information security for staff as well as managers who would like to manage their information security. This heterogeneity leads to an improper identification of educational needs which in turn causes the output of the course to be of undesirable quality. This research is aimed at the determination of educational needs of Dar al-Hadith Institute staff in Qom, Iran in the field of information security based on context information such as age, type of education, level of education and length of their service. An electronic questionnaire was used to collect information and non-hierarchical clustering procedure in SPSS software was applied to analyze data obtained from 123 trainees. At the end of the course, it was revealed that university staff and research center staff had different educational needs in some cases that could be justified by context information. In general, participants were divided into two clusters. Then the number of members in each cluster was defined along with their level of interest and their need for any item in the curricula.
