UPDATE: APRIL 27, 2020

CASI continues to monitor the situation as it evolves around the world. Our primary focus is the safety of everyone involved in providing CASI programs from candidates to evaluators, and even resort staff. CASI certification courses are currently on hold in all of our locations around the globe. We will be following the recommendations of local authorities and will re-launch our programs when it is safe and responsible to do so. Stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to sliding with you again soon!

UPDATE: MARCH 14, 2020


Dear CASI-ACMS members,

The situation, as the world is dealing with the coronavirus (COVID-19), is evolving very quickly. In light of today’s events, which include a number of resort operators suspending operations, we are suspending our CASI Operations and Events until further notice effective March 16, 2020. If we are able to resume operations during the 2019-2020 season, we will do so with an amended schedule.

For those of you that are currently registered for a course, or participating in a course currently running, we will be refunding your full course fees ASAP, please be patient as we process the large volume of refunds.

These are extremely challenging times. Please stay tuned to www.casi-acms.com for updates, as well as our social media channels. We will be posting Q&A’s and additional information as soon as we can. 

Thank you for your continued understanding,

Simon Holden
Executive Director & CEO

As the world is dealing with the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situaton, we want to assure you, that your health and well-being is our highest priority. 

We are closely monitoring the situation via https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection.html and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

At this time, all of our Domestic Programs are operating normally. Domestically, should the Health Authorities issue any changes in any region or issue any restrictions or recommendations, we will immediately adjust our operations and communicate those adjustments to you. As a recommendation, we are asking Evaluators to refrain from shaking hands going forward.

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The CDC recommends the following:   

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough in your elbow or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask: CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

  • CDC recommends that face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19, to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

It’s important that we all pay close attention to the above information and remain calm. We will be sure to communicate any changes in our operations to each of you, immediately, should this highly fluid situation change at any time.

If you are at all concerned about attending a course or event that you are registered for either because you think you may be exposing others to the virus or because you fear being exposed to the virus yourself please contact Lewis Hopps lewis@casi-acms.com for a full refund with no penalty fees.

In addition, should there be any questions about the CASI-ACMS response to COVID 19, please direct them to Simon Holden simon@casi-acms.com 519-624-6593 x101 or Jeff Chandler jeff@casi-acms.com 519-624-6593 x104.

Thank you,
