While looking for a splitboard "club" in Calgary, I happened upon this shop. I haven't been in to talk to them yet, but looks like they offer splitboard sales, rentals, service, and AST 1 and 2 courses in the area.
It's too late for me for this year, but I'm thinking next year I'll sign up for AST 1 and rent a board from them for the practical part of it. I'll get to see where they go and hit some of the typical safer lines in our area. Looks like they head up the icefields parkway, probably 2-3 hours from Calgary.
