The Freestyle Specialist E-Learning Course must be completed before registering for your on-snow event. This E-Learning Course is offered on a Snowboard or Skiing track, costs $20, and offers 1 CEU credit upon completion. You can access the course here:
The Freestyle Specialist Exams are a two-day or three-night "clinic style" event (like a level I exam). The first day is a clinic and the second day is a test. The group will consist of both snowboarders and skiers and all levels of park teaching and riding experience.
Unlike other exams, the Freestyle Specialist is non-linear. You can choose the level you feel confident pursuing -- I, II, III. For example, if you are a very experienced and accomplished park instructor, skip level I and go straight to II or III. Talk with your evaluator to get their feedback on what level they think you should attempt on Day Two. While you may discuss and select your desired Specialist level, you may not change once you begin the exam on Day Two. Pick a specialization level within your teaching and riding ability because you may not switch once the exam has started. (Note: Testing Level may be limited by park terrain.)
