Instructor Development Program
The National Ski Patrol (NSP) doesn’t grow patrollers, it builds them. Each patroller learns his or her skills from a certified NSP instructor. These hardworking instructors are the backbone of all NSP education programs; without them, there would be no patrollers. The skills learned in the NSP Instructor Development Program (ID) focus on principles of adult education that are applicable to any field. The NSP is always seeking talented instructors to deliver its OEC, OET, Avalanche, MTR, Nordic, and ID programs.
The Instructor Development course is the first course in a program to develop NSP instructors. There are two options to take the Instructor Development course.
Option 1: In class session: Approximately 8-hours.
This process establishes a basic flow for an NSP patroller to follow to become an instructor. There is some flexibility with experienced instructors. Consult the Mentor, Instructor Trainer or Region Administrator if you have any questions or concerns. To learn more on how to become a NSP Instructor - click here
