Helping guests at Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort on the Gogebic Range in Michigan's Upper Peninsula
The National Ski Patrol doesn’t grow patrollers, it builds them. Each patroller learns his or her skills from an approved NSP instructor. By entering the instructor development program, you will develop the skills to become an instructor in whatever disciplines you choose to pursue, whether that is outdoor emergency care, outdoor emergency transport, or one of the many other courses and programs offered by NSP.
Our hardworking instructors are the backbone of all NSP education programs. Do you have the desire to better yourself by becoming an instructor? 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 towards developing new NSP instructors, and must be taken by all prospective instructors in any discipline.
