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

What: The Snowboard Level III Exam is the third 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 III.


Movement Analysis Exam Module

During the exam, you will demonstrate your understanding and application 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, present an organized and detailed description using non-judgmental terminology, and give accurate cause and effect relationships. At the Level 3 standard, it is important to be able to clarify how one body movement can affect another body movement to affect board performance and the turn/trick outcome.
