Timeline for Reinstatement
Prior certified members, in good standing, who have let their membership status lapse for a period longer than five (5) years must take and pass a certification examination at the Level they wish to be reinstated to or choose to bypass the exam process and be automatically reinstated as a Certified Level I.
Prior certified members, in good standing, who have let their membership lapse for a period of five (5) years or less will follow the process described below. If prior certified member does not feel he/she is at the certified level previously held he/she may choose to request and be granted Level I status.
Member School Recommendation
A prior certified member who believes he/she is qualified to reinstate at Level II or III must be currently teaching for a PSIA-NW school. In addition, the Trainer, Supervisor or School Director of the school must submit a written recommendation for the individual’s reinstatement stating that the member’s skiing/riding and teaching skills meet the current national standards for the discipline for which reinstatement is sought. If the prior certified member seeks certification reinstatement in more than one (1) discipline, the recommendation must include each discipline for which reinstatement is sought.
A written exam for the Level and discipline(s) applied for must be taken and passed prior to the on snow assessment. See Exam and Event Calendar or the printed season guide for dates and locations of the written exams.
The reinstatement assessment will be conducted by a current Examiner to determine whether the candidate meets the established national exam standards. It shall be conducted during a two (2) day educational event which will count towards current educational requirements. Reinstatement at the completion of the event will be at the individual’s current assessed level, Certified Level II or III, regardless of the Level applied for. A separate on snow assessment shall be required for each discipline for which reinstatement is sought. See Exam and Event Calendar or the printed season guide for dates and locations of 2-day Educational Events.
Note: Until the entire reinstatement process is complete the membership card issued at the time of dues payment to begin the reinstatement process will show national and divisional Level I status.
