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.
