We have both our Ski and Snowboard instructor clients kicking off their Level 1 exam today. The CSIA (ski) exam runs for 3 days and on Thursday they will sit the teaching with childrens module. The snowboarders are sitting the CASI exam that runs for 3 days.
CSIA Level 1 – The 3 day level 1 course is an introduction to ski teaching, CSIA technique and methodology, and the role of ski teaching within the ski industry. It combines the basics of practical ski teaching methods, technical understanding and development of guest service skills, specifically addressing children's skiing.
CASI Level 1 – The CASI Level 1 course is an introductory course, designed to give successful candidates the skills necessary to begin their role as a new instructor in the industry. Beginner teaching methods, understanding of basic snowboard technique, as well as lesson planning and effective communication skills will be addressed.
Stay tuned for exciting results later in the week.
