What: This assessment-based certificate course is offered to PSIA-AASI certified instructors. The course will help you understand how children; think, feel about themselves, interact with others, and move as they grow and develop. You will see how this understanding can be creatively applied to Beginner/Novice into Intermediate Zone lessons. You will have the opportunity to share your knowledge with the group and compare it to the National Standard.
Why: Be “that guy/gal”. You know the one. The instructor having fun with a bunch of laughing kids around them, while providing a truly inspired safe, fun and educational experience. In this course, you will learn the skills that instructor possesses so you too can be recognized for your education, experience, and expertise in teaching children snow sports.
How: Participants will need a copy of the Children’s Instruction Manual, 2nd Edition, Improving Student Engagement – Give’em what they C.R.A.V.E., and watch this video to complete the XC CS 1 Workbook. The workbook must be completed prior to attending the event. The course is designed around the concepts learned in the workbook and will be reviewed and practiced, during the first part of the event. Each participant will apply this knowledge including current children’s snow sports trends to a PSIA/AASI-C Child Development Level in the second part of the event. Participants’ achievement will be relayed via verbal and written feedback from the clinician throughout the course and at its end.
