|Alpine Level 1 Hybrid Exam||Back to Calendar|
The Level I Webinar (LI certification, part I) is a two-evening, (2 hours each) introduction to the organization, and resources available to PSIA-AASI members. It is an "onboarding process" that transitions a new member from "interested" to "informed".
Your clinician will guide you through the elements of a beginner lesson using personal experience, and video segments. Participants will be encouraged to share their own methods, progressions and experiences.
Topics to be covered include professionalism, technique, lesson delivery, providing feedback, making the human connection, movement analysis. A computer, Internet connection, and microphone or phone are mandatory, a webcam is highly recommended.
Participation is expected during the webinar, and participants may expect to teach the group how to perform or execute a task unrelated to skiing- from "how to make an omelet" to "shoe-tying 101". A computer with audio and webcam is necessary for participation.
Members seeking Level I certification then continue to the LI E-Learning Course (online) if not previously completed, and a one-day, on-snow assessment. The on-snow is a one-day event in which candidates review the benchmarks, gaining insight into movements, modifications, and the underlying reason behind them.
Candidates will be assessed on their teaching, and skiing, including task demos. More information for the Alpine Level I Certification can be found on the Alpine Education & Certification Page.
The On-snow exam will consists of one, six hour day - All three portions must be complete to attain LI certification.
*Alternatively, this exam portion can be conducted as a 1-hour private interview/lesson.
Certificates and pins to be mailed post event.
