Anybody AASI Certified?

I was thinking about becoming certified and just wanted to hear some advice from those that already are. Like what's the best way to get it done, what levels there are and what it takes to get there.

i have my aasi level 1. i have trained for my level 2 a couple of seasons but i am not a full-time instructor and it is, in my opinion, almost impossible to attain the required level fo competence in riding, and especially teaching, if one is not teaching full-time.

i work in a ski school in tahoe and so it was easy for me as i have access to an excellent in-house training program - we have 3 aasi level 3 examiners on staff and numerous level 3 certs. training clinics go out pretty much every day of the season so the opportunities to work on riding improvement, teaching, ma, etc. are numerous.

if you plan to work at a resort, i would go that route. if not, contact your local aasi division and ask them to suggest the best course of action.

What's it take to get level 2 and 3? I think it would be something I'd like to get along with a freestyle certification. I'm not looking to make a career out of it just would like to be able to work nights at my local mountain and weekends at a reputable resort.

do you already have your level 1?

here's a link to the aasi (western) educational materials page. it has downloadable pdfs of the riding and teaching standards for all levels and freestyle accreditation:

From your Profile I see you are in New Hampshire. Here is a link to the Eastern Division website. It will contain a lot of information for you.
