Become an Instructor



CANSI certification courses are intended to teach people to teach skiing, and are not designed to be lessons for personal skill development in skiing. 

CANSI instructor certification courses have specific evaluation criteria that must be met in order to pass the course.  Candidates are evaluated on their ability to ski identified techniques at an appropriate skill level.  Their ability to adequately teach techniques is also evaluated.

At level 1, the evaluated techniques are diagonal stride, double pole, one skate and wedge turn.  Lesson evaluations include diagonal stride without poles, diagonal stride, double pole, straight running, braking wedge, wedge turn, herringbone, side step, free skate, one skate and diagonal skate.

This national designation is the minimum requirement needed to teach with the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club Ski School.  Teaching experience is not required to take a CANSI level 1 course.

The LEVEL ONE COURSE will be offered at CNSC December 9 to 11, 2021.

The LEVEL TWO COURSE will be offered at CNSC JANUARY  27, 28, 30, FEBRUARY 1, 2022.

The LEVEL THREE COURSE will be offered at CNSC FEBRUARY 17-21, 2022.
