Event Crew Development

The Snowsport Scotland Event Crew Development (ECD) programme incorporates our FREE volunteer training courses. These courses offer training to anyone wishing to learn how to get involved in the running of Alpine, Freestyle, and Freeride snowsports events.

Syllabus: The syllabus has been structured into ten separate 2.5hr training modules covering all aspects of event management, safety and officiating, from basic volunteer roles through to timing, judging, and Chief of Race or Event Director level.

Short Modules:  Each module can be delivered as a half day or evening session, and full day courses can be tailored to combine different modules as necessary.

Scheduling: Courses take place in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Aviemore and Fort William and are scheduled based on demand,
