Ski instructor qualifications in Canada
SnowSkool operates two CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance) ski instructor courses – at the Albertan resort of Banff and out west in Big White in British Columbia. On both these programmes, the entire ski training schedule is focussed on attainment of the CSIA Level 1 and CSIA Level 2 ski instructor exams. Add-on certifications are available too in the form of the CSIA Snowpark Certificate and the ACA-CSC (Alpine Canada Alpin-Canadian Ski Coaches) Entry Level Ski Race Coach qualification. CSIA is a fully paid-up member of the ISIA (International Ski Instructors’ Alliance) which provides a criteria by which to assess the equivalency in level of the CSIA against all the other ski instructor qualifications of the world’s major ski nations.
