Instructor Development

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.

Option 2: Hybrid e-course (NSP.org), 2-3 hours on-line followed by 2-3 hour face-to-face in class session.
