Instructor Development Courses

NH Region teaches the new “On-Line” Hybrid Instructor Development course. This approach allows individuals to use the online portion and the reading materials to create their own self-paced course supervised by an assigned ID Instructor. NH Region maintains a virtual classroom setup with all the necessary resources and live Instructors to help students succeed.

To complete the course during the winter ski season, a face-to-face meeting with an assigned ID Instructor is scheduled at the student’s ski area. Out of season, ID students who have completed the On-Line portion can choose from three available meeting dates and locations.

For those students who prefer a traditional long day in the classroom, NH Region teaches that ID Course in late August.  This course is favored by upcoming OEC Instructors because it meets just prior to the autumn OEC Mentoring season.  Check the Calendar or scroll below to find the all-classroom ID course.

All-Day Classroom Based "Instructor Development" Course

Instructor Development course is a one-day course that prepares patrollers who have decided to become NSP instructors.  This course is a pre-requisite for all Instructor Training and is generic "in nature."  If you are planning on pursuing an instructor certificate in OEC, Mountain Travel, and Rescue, Avalanche or Alpine Toboggan Transportation, this course is your first step.  All disciplines require that you begin with Instructor Development.

Traditional Instructor Development Course is free and takes about 7 hours of instruction time.  It has a prerequisite reading assignment; the books will be emailed to you by the Instructors after registration is completed.  Click the Register link below to fill out the form and join us.

Other than the textbook reading, no other preparation is required.  This course is taught in the traditional classroom method used before the introduction of national's Hybrid video lectures.  Join us and let the ID Instructor guide you through the Instructor Development work the old fashioned way -- no computers!

NH Region schedules this course to prepare OEC Instructor Trainees who are planning on mentoring during the autumn OEC course season.  The next opportunity for ID courses begins with the winter ski season when the Self-Paced Hybrid E-Course opens in December.
