Instructor Development [ID]


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 Instructor Development.

Access to exceptional education programs is paramount to the success of all National Ski Patrol members, who are required to continually update their skills. The NSP maintains its high standards of providing the best on-slope safety and service by providing our members with the opportunity to become more knowledgeable and to enhance the skills they need to carry out their duties.
