Alpine Level 1 E-Learning Course

"The Level 1 exam is designed as the first step in the certification process. The weekend gives instructors an opportunity to have their skiing, teaching and technical skills evaluated against National PSIA Standards for Level 1 certification.

Why: The Level I exam gives the candidate an opportunity to learn collaboratively with the PSIA-C education staff as well as other candidates. The Level I exam is the beginning step in the exam process for instructors who wish to expand their teaching careers. The candidate has the opportunity to enhance their teaching, skiing and technical skills.

How: The exam consists of two days. Day 1 consists of a clinic lead by an education staff member to demonstrate teaching skills for beginning skiers using the Y-Model and skiing skills from first turns to basic parallel. Day 2 is an exam based on the format learned in day one. In Day 2 an education staff member will evaluate the candidates skiing skills, teaching skills and technical skills against PSIA National Standards for Level 1.

IMPORTANT: All events are subject to our normal registration and change/cancellation policy. Fees may apply if registering, cancelling, or changing your registration less than two weeks prior to the event.

All PSIA/AASI members must follow the PSIA/AASI code of conduct.
