How to become a Student
To be a student in a program in one of the CADS - ALBERTA Zones you need to be a CADS member. CADS membership provides you with third party liability insurance.
To get started approach the contact person for the zone you are interested in participating (click here for a list of the zones). This person will let you know the registration dates and what is required from you.
Some of the programs would require you to show at the registration time to get physically assessed by an instructor to determine your equipment needs.
Registration is on a first come first serve basis and is mostly limited by the number of volunteers available at each zone.
If it is past the registration date already get in touch with the contact person anyway as there is in some programs a waiting list and you can get details for next season.
