"ID" Instructor Development and Mentoring


How to Become an NSP Instructor in EPA Region


Take the Instructor Development course in person which is run twice a year, early spring and late fall.

After taking the class and filling out the appropriate paperwork, you will be assigned a mentor by the person that runs the OEC/OET program for your patrol. NOTE: Avalanche, MTR, and ID are regional programs; you must contact the program advisor if you want to get involved in any one of these fields.

There is no time limit as to when an instructor candidate is signed off as a full instructor by an Instructor Trainer. When the mentor feels that the mentee is ready for final evaluation, the mentor must contact the IT.

If the Instructor Candidate is successful, the IT must process a Course Completion Record and submit it to the EPA Program Advisor of the discipline. The EPA Program Advisor will then submit the CCR to the National Office.

The NSP does offer an Online ID Course. After completing the online ID course the patroller must meet with an ID Instructor Trainer for approximately 6 hours. This is why if a patroller in EPA elects to take the online course, the patroller must still do all of the above. However, the course fee will be waived.
