CSIA Level 2 Upgrade

So you already have your CSIA Level 1 or equivalent? And you want to go for the CSIA Level 2? Well you can with YES.

The Level 2 ski instructor certification is for advanced skiers who have passed the Level 1 certification. The course enables ski instructors to improve their situational teaching skills, to acquire a better understanding of CSIA technique and methodology, and the role of ski teaching within the ski industry. It combines practical ski teaching methods, technical understanding and development, and improvement of guest service skills. 

Candidates will receive coaching on their skiing, teaching and people skills with the goal of reaching the Level 2 standard. They will also receive suggestions and strategies for long-term development. The successful candidate is certified to teach skiers up to intermediate parallel skill level. 

You will learn how to assess and develop skiers in various terrain and tactics. The program includes technical seminar, on-going assessment of your skiing progress, weekly fun video (see yourself on the big screen at our weekly Friday après) and a written personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified YES Level 4 Pros.

* Please note- if you haven't already completed one of the required national modules (10 credits) set out by CSIA then you will need to do this in order to take the CSIA Level 2. YES can assist/offer advice with this process.

We suggest coming for 3 weeks to complete the training and examination but if time is limited you could choose to come for 2 weeks. We can also put together a custom schedule for you if you can't do all 3 weeks in one block - for example do 1 or 2 weeks of ski improvement early in the season, then come back later in the winter to do the exam prep and certification.

Week 1 - Ski Improvement - find those ski legs again

Week 2 - Level 2 training and prep week

Week 3 - CSIA Level 2 exam (Total of 4 days - 2 day Level 2 training followed by 2 days of assesed training)
