*Partial pass of an exam does not transfer to the new region (i.e. if a member passes the ‘Ski’ portion of an exam in the West they can not plan on taking only the remaining portions in another region), certification exams must be completed, in full, in a single region. However, a member can return to their old region to complete the certification.
Snowsports Instructors with foreign certifications seeking PSIA-AASI certification:
Must become a member of PSIA-AASI
Must be current and provide proof of active certification from another country/association to
PSIA-AASI certification is not granted until successful completion of the entire exam process, including prerequisites.
Level 1 Foreign Certified Instructors can go directly to the PSIA-AASI Level 2 of the same discipline.
Level 2-3 Foreign Certified Instructors can challenge the same level (or a lower level, if preferred), but cannot ‘hopscotch’ to the next level. For example, a Canadian Level 2 can register for the PSIA-AASI Level 1 or 2. If the candidate is not successful he/she will be assigned Registered member status, but will not hold any certification with PSIA-AASI.
