Calling all trainers! PSIC Licensed Professional Trainer training is coming!
The PSIC is gearing up for our inaugural Licensed Professional Trainer training. PSIC LPT training is open to anyone who has course conductor status in any other organization, domestic or international (e.g. CSIA Level 1-4 Course Conductor, PSIA Trainer, APSI Trainer, BASI Trainer, etc.) and is a member of the PSIC. Participation in this annual training will be required to be contracted to deliver PSIC programs.
The PSIC does not require exclusivity from its Licensed Professional Trainers. The PSIC values and respects the ski professional and the integral role that the LPT plays in expert delivery of training programs and professional development for PSIC members. As such, the PSIC is investing in LPT training and providing it at zero cost to qualifying members. Full details on the 2023 LPT training will be released shortly.
The PSIC team continues to grow and we are working hard to deliver a great program this season. We can’t wait to ski with you this winter!
