EVENT CALENDAR

As the season’s event details are finalized, the events will appear on the calendar displayed below. To find out more details about the events, you can hover over the event for a quick view or click on each event to reveal more in depth info such as location/venue, price, deadline to signup, and much more.

If at any time you have questions please call/text PSIA-NW Member Services 206-244-8541 or email info@psia-nw.org.

Review the event calendar below and click on the specific event you would like to register for and it will give details on how to sign up. Registration is required two weeks prior to events. After that, the full rate registration applies. If an event cancels that you are registered for, we will notify you immediately.

Education Credits

Education events are designed to help you learn and grow as a snowsports professional. They also serve as an opportunity for you to keep up-to-date on the latest techniques and trends in your discipline. Every certified member of the NW Division is required to attend at least one education event each season. See the event calendar below for a full list of events.

Continuing education credits are required each season to stay up-to-date. Typically a one day education event provides one season’s education credit. Two and three day events provide education credit for two seasons.

Note on Education Credits

You may only accrue up to two education credits; i.e. if you attend a one day event in January for one education credit, then take an exam in March which provides two education credits, the total credits you will accrue is two credits, which means you will need another education credit within two years.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

  • Full refund less $30 admin fee for cancellation 10 business days from event
  • No refund for cancellation less than 10 business days from event
  • Our admin fees are non-refundable

Request for Non-PSIA-AASI Credit

To receive credit for a non-PSIA-AASI event, we require a request for approval of the event in advance. The request must provide us with details of what the event will entail and its duration. Complete the downloadable form below and e-mail to info@psia-nw.org.

Request Form

The “Outside” credit policy allows members to count certain non-PSIA-AASI functions towards continuing educational credit, contingent upon pre-approval, and a $30.00 administration fee. It is important to remember this request can only be used once every three seasons. The purpose of this policy is to allow members who wish to broaden their base of experience to do so, while at the same time meet their continuing education requirements. Please note, requests need to be completed for participation or attendance of outside events occurring in the current season.

We appreciate your feedback on events to help us continue to create and improve programs and experiences for you.
