Please note: The Central Senior Specialist Workbook must be successfully completed before registering for the On-Snow portion of the course. (On-Snow Registration is available 1 day after completing the Workbook online)
What: A two-day (12 CEU) course open to any Level I or higher PSIA AASI Central member. The Senior Specialist program will present instructors with educational training to gain tools and knowledge necessary to deliver high-quality lessons for the senior skier.
How: The Senior Specialist 1 course encourages participants to apply the information included in the PSIA-NW Senior Specialist Manual, their own professional knowledge, as well as an understanding of the fundamentals- both in the completion of the workbook and during the on-snow portion. The Senior Specialist On-Snow portion will add substance to the concepts and content introduced in the workbook. The On-Snow portion will use real-time & hypothetical scenarios to apply standard exercises, modified in both their approach and execution relative to the senior student. Participants will test the principles of senior-specific models, the teaching cycle, theoretical and applied professional knowledge to these scenarios. The practical portion will address how presentation framing & phrasing differs by student; seniors are no exception.
Please see the Senior’s Page to find the mandatory workbook, resources, and discipline-specific fundamentals.
It’s rare that we cancel an entire event unless the resort/area is closed, but we often find it necessary to cancel or combine sessions at an event because the session minimum has not been met. When this happens, we will contact you as early as possible and offer other session options at the same event or transfer you to another event. Cancellation and transfer fees do not apply under these circumstances. If we cancel a session you are registered for, and it is not possible for you to attend another event by the end of the season, your registration fee sub any administrative fees will be refunded. If you are in need of education credits for this season then all possible pathways must be exhausted before a waiver is granted. (Webinars, Non ASEA Events, etc.)
