Instructor Program | CSIA / CASI Level 1

CSIA – Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance, Level 1
CASI – Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors, Level 1

Eligibility: Strong skier (age 15+) or snowboarder (age 16+), minimum age at the time of the course. We recommend that anyone who registers for these courses first participate in the school as a volunteer, for two reasons:

  • First, to gain a better understanding of ski and snowboard instruction;
  • Second, to participate in our Ski and Snowboard School morning and afternoon training sessions.

Simply put, it is very difficult to attend the exams without preparing for them. The School would like to invite you to volunteer and gain the experience needed to be successful course candidate.

More information and registration for courses is available at the CSIA website.

Level I CSIA, December 22–24, 2016 (Ski)
