The CASI Level 2 Instructor certification is for any snowboarder that has passed the Level 1 certification, and has an interest in teaching more experienced snowboarders. CASI recommends that Level 2 candidates have prior experience teaching snowboarding in a snow school setting (approximately 45 hours) before attempting the Level 2 certification. This is not a mandatory requirement, and all Level 1 members are welcomed on the course, however, it is recommended in order to help ensure success at the Level 2 evaluations.
The goal of the Level 2 course is to develop a skills-based teaching approach for intermediate and advanced snowboarding, as well as an understanding of CASI technique and methodology, and the role of snowboard teaching within the industry. It combines practical snowboard teaching methods, technical understanding and development, as well as development of guest interaction and technical analysis skills.
Candidates will receive coaching on their riding and teaching skills, with the goal of reaching the Level 2 standard in both areas. They will also receive suggestions and strategies for long-term development. The successful candidate
is certified to teach snowboarders up to the Advanced Sliding Turn and Intermediate Carving level.
