Update: this course, originally planned for March 13-15, has been postponed until December of 2020. CANSI-certified instructors will be able to re-certify then.
We’re organizing a Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors (CANSI) Level 1 training course.
The course is geared towards strong skiers that are able to demonstrate solid classic and skate technique. A classic skier who is not a strong skate skier can still be qualified as a Level 1 Classic instructor.
The course will run 20 hours, starting the evening of Friday March 13, with eight hours of instruction Saturday and Sunday, both indoors and outdoors.
CANSI courses can cost $350 to $500. We’re subsidizing this course at:
- $50 for program coaches and members willing to teach adult classes for the club;
- $100 for club members that just want the qualification;
- and $150 for non-members.
The course is open to skiers as young as 16.
People who want to participate will also need to purchase a $100 CANSI membership, which includes access to teaching aids and other goodies.
