SSCD Guide Training

SSCD Guide Training

Guide Training Format

Our training can be catered for your Club’s needs. This can be hosted at your own Club or at our base location in East Sussex.

The Guide Training scheme enables volunteers to train, qualify and register as guides, the scheme embodies the ethos that the needs of the skier are paramount, on and off skis. The 24-hour commitment a guide makes requires care, patience and understanding. There are minimum skiing ability and age restrictions to become a guide, plus all the safeguarding and government requirements.

Enjoyed the course I have learnt so much and have been on a physical and emotional journey. I feel my awareness about disability has improved dramatically & I feel much more confident in being able to assist and help. The instructors have been very patient and answered all questions. I would highly recommend this course to others. Thank you SSCD
