Welcome to Delivering the Beginner Experience. In this course, you will learn techniques and tools to help give your students a successful beginner experience. The course is broken down into five separate sections that will walk you through: 1) why providing an excellent beginner lesson is important; 2) how to work with the nordic center; 3) introducing yourself to the guest; 4) on snow tips and tricks you can use to offer the best beginner experience; and 5) wrapping up the lesson. After you take this course, work with your nordic center to understand how to adapt your teaching foundation to the needs of your students.

You will spend the next hour or so working through our best advice on delivering the beginner experience. At the end of each module, there will be a quiz to check for your understanding.
