The NSP doesn’t grow patrollers; it builds them.  Each patroller learns his or her skills from a certified NSP instructor.  The Instructor Development program, available only to NSP members, is designed to create quality instructors to support all NSP programs.

The Instructor Development course and associated mentoring is required for all new NSP instructors.  Focused on principles of adult learning, the program strives to

  • develop effective instructors for all NSP disciplines
  • facilitate ongoing development of existing instructors
  • assist in the recertification of NSP instructors in all disciplines
