Are You New? Welcome Aboard!
Most new members have joined as a registered member preparing to successfully complete a Level I exam.
Remember, any certified PSIA-NW member must attend at least a one day education event each season (or a two day event every other season) to remain current and in good standing. A full list of our events is on our event calender.
For new members your annual dues are due on or before June 30th of each season to avoid late fees.
Member benefits include special discount pricing on many products that ski and snowboard professionals use on a daily basis like skis or snowboards, soft goods like gloves, goggles, clothing, tuning tools, and even cars – yeah, that’s right – a pro deal on a new Volkswagen. Be sure to check out all the special offers available to members like you here at www.psia-nw.org or www.thesnowpros.org.
New Instructor Guide
Welcome to teaching skiing and snowboarding! This New Snowsports Instructor Guide will introduce you to the profession of teaching snowsports. This guide will help you in your training as a new instructor and as you train toward the Professional Ski Instructors of America-American Association of Snowboard Instructors
(PSIA-AASI) Level I certification.
This New Snowsports Instructor Guide introduces you to PSIA-AASI models and concepts, used across all of the different snowsports that instructors teach. The intent of this guide is not to replace the manuals and resources that PSIA-AASI produces, rather it is to introduce these to you and guide you to more in-depth information about these topic areas. This Guide will not be the only resource you will need as you train; it provides you a way to track your personal progress in becoming a professional snowsports instructor and, if you decide, as you train towards your PSIA-AASI Level I certification.
