2023 NSP Eastern Division Certified Annual Examination
Sugarbush Ski Resort is pleased to host the Eastern Division’s Certified Programs annual exam. The NSP Certified exam will test the six core components over three days. The annual meeting will be held on Sunday morning. Limited COVID-19 protocols will be in place. It is highly recommended to be vaccinated with a booster shot. Sanitizing all equipment and social distancing may be asked of you; please be cognizant of other people’s needs and risk levels.
Due to the challenges of increased participation, the annual exam will have some components examining early in the event to maintain opportunities for all. All existing Certified members are asked to attend and participate in the examination. Please, civilian jackets only – No crosses.
