Chris definitely knows his stuff. He led my new hire clinic at WP. I only had time to take a few training clinics with him last season. He mainly did the Cert 3 and freestyle clinics. Chris wouldn't recognize my riding now. It gave him fits sometimes.
My Cert 2 riding tasks were really sketchy at the beginning of this season. There are still three riding tasks that need improvement. Our NZ trainers advised waiting until next year - they knew I was stressing it. I did bring back material from my prep clinics that helped all Cert 2 candidates out. Also, many people were panicing over the teaching segment of the exam - Cert 2 & Cert 3's. It's a tough thing to be reviewed by your peers. They can pick up the slightest flaws.
The advanced MA is something I'm working at improving too. Until this season it's been hard for me to get classes above the never-ever stage. I try to practice some from the lift and from the cafe windows facing the main drag down to the base area. One trainer suggested us trying to recreate on snow the movements we see our students doing. It's a great way to detect the root cause. The new Focus on Riding DVD is helpful too.
I wouldn't mind trading experiences and ideas. The AASI board is pretty dead and (no offense) it seems like only the Eastern guys post. Their season is pretty short and they don't quite have the terrain that we do. I know they can rock it all but I think the cultures are different.
I do have my AASI-RM Cert 2 Study Guide filled out in detail and in a Word format. I'm sure it's a bit different in your division. You are welcome to it if you want it. I would still hit the books and study - you could probably even find things to add to it.
