I’m not yet affiliated with a snowsports school; can I still take a Level I Assessment?
If you haven’t already joined a snowsports school, we highly encourage you to do that. Most instructors do their initial training through their own school.
If you can’t do that, there are other ways to learn what you need to know.
- We offer a 5-day Alpine Level I College and a 5-day Snowboard Level I College that both include several days of training/prep and a Level Assessment at the end.
- There are 2-hour online Alpine Level I Assessment Intro courses offered once a month.
- These online courses can be a helpful introduction:
- Course for New Instructors
- Delivering the Beginner Experience
- Introduction to Working with Children
- Make sure you study these manuals:
- Teaching Snowsports Manual
- Technical Manual of your discipline
- Teaching Children Snowsports Manual
Be aware of the Event Participant Safety Policy if you decide to take the Level I Assessment.
