Course Description (Snowboard Level II Tech/MA Exam Module):

What: The Snowboard Level II certification is the second step in the certification process and gives the candidate an opportunity to have their riding, teaching, and professional knowledge evaluated using the PSIA-AASI National Standards and Assessment Criteria.


How: This is a two-day on snow certification with a modular format. Day one is an assessment of Teaching Skills, Movement Analysis Skills, and Technical Understanding; day two is an assessment of Riding Skills. People Skills are assessed both days and throughout every category of the exam. Each section will be scored and candidates must have a minimum average score of 4 for each section to attain Level II.


Movement Analysis Exam Module

During the exam, you will demonstrate your understanding of movement analysis through observation, evaluation, and prescription with video and/or live riders. You must clearly demonstrate that you are able to see the refined movements of an intermediate-advanced rider, and present an organized and detailed description using non-judgmental terminology. Be able to give an accurate cause and effect relationship describing how a body movement affects a board performance and how that body movement affects the turn/trick outcome. Also share a prescription for change that prioritizes corrections and development, and accurately addresses the rider's needs.
