Want to become a CANSI instructor?

CANSI is the national association for the training and certification of cross country and telemark ski instructors in Canada.

Anyone 15 years of age or older can attend a Level I course in either cross country or telemark discipline. Level I courses are offered across Canada.

Upon successful completion of a Level I course you become a member of CANSI and this gives you access to higher level certification course, refresher briefings, skill development programs and all technical information designed to help you grow and develop your skiing and teaching skills.

February has brought a return to more seasonal temperatures and snow, at least where I live. I hope you are able to ski wherever you are.

I have always wondered why there are only three levels of CANSI instructor certification in telemark skiing. Cross country, alpine and snowboard instruction have four levels, but there have always only been three in telemark. This is about to change.

I am very proud to announce the implementation of the CANSI telemark Level IV certification. CANSI’s technical committee, under the direction of Elizabeth Nicholson, has developed this new and historic step for our telemark instructor program.

Denys Lawrence, CANSI President
