Certification

The American Teaching System has various levels of certification. PSIA & AASI has developed and implemented national certification standards that each of the nine divisions use to create examinations to validate your skills as an instructor. While each divisions may use a slightly different exam format, largely due to an effort to meet the needs of each division’s membership and specific needs of their geographic area, each adheres to the same National Standards.

Aside from these fundamental forms of certification, the PSIA-NW division also offers supporting Specialist Training in specific areas such as instruction for children, seniors, and freestyle. For more information about Specialist Training, see the event schedule or choose from your specific discipline drop down menu.
