EVENT CALENDAR

The calendar is still being updated with events, please continue to check back for updates.

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

Education Credits

Continuing education (CEU) 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 6 CEU each season (usually one day on snow). 

All events, online sessions, etc. will list the number of CEUs provided.

Note on Education Credits

You may only accrue up to 12 CEU; i.e. if you attend a one-day event in January for 6 credits, then take an exam in March which provides 12 credits, the total credits will be 18, and take care of things for the current season and the next. You can always check your credits by looking at your profile at thesnowpros.org.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

  • Full refund less $30 admin fee for cancellation 10 business days from event (no transfer of registration to another person)
  • No refund for cancellation less than 10 business days from event (no transfer of registration to another person)
  • No show, no refunds
  • No transfer of event registrations between individuals
  • To transfer an event for yourself, send the request 14 days before original registered event, and as long as there is room, we will complete the transfer. 
  • Admin fees are non-refundable

Request for Non-PSIA-AASI Credit

To receive credit for a non-PSIA-AASI event, we require our members to submit a request for approval of the event at least 30 days in advance. The request must provide us with details of what the event will entail and its duration. Complete the online form for approval HERE.

The “Outside” credit policy allows members to count certain non-PSIA-AASI functions towards continuing educational credit, contingent upon pre-approval, and an 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.
