EVALUATOR TRAINING


Thank you for your interest in becoming a CASI Course Evaluator!

Evaluators are responsible for training and certifying new snowboard instructors. Level 3 instructors who wish to become new Evaluators must first attend a yearly Rookie Evaluator Training course at their chosen location - this is the first step in becoming a certified Level 1 Evaluator. Following the training course, new Evaluators may apply to the apprenticeship (rookie) program where they will join a regularly-scheduled course to continue their training with an experienced Mentor Evaluator (see below).

For existing Evaluators, yearly update courses are mandatory in order to maintain current Evaluator status.

Notes:

  • Required Training: Evaluators who wish to teach courses on behalf of CASI this season MUST attend a regularly-scheduled Evaluator Training update course in it’s entirety.
  • Lapsed Evaluators: Evaluators who do not attend Evaluator Training for a period of three (3) years will be considered to be Lapsed Evaluators. Lapsed Evaluators who wish to resume teaching courses will be required to attend complete all or part of a rookie/apprenticeship program for each certification level that they wish to teach prior to being considered available to teach those courses.
  • Walk-On Registrations: Pre-registration is required for all Evaluator Training events. Walk-on registrations will not be permitted.
  • Level 2's who were previously CASI evaluators prior to 2017 are encouraged to continue to attend Evaluator Training this year to receive the training and update info while continuing to work towards the Level 3 certification. Once the Level 3 certification is complete, these individuals will be considered eligible to teach CASI courses.
  • All Level 3 CASI Members are welcome and encouraged to attend Evaluator Training, even if you aren't eligible to teach CASI courses (i.e.: if you are a Snow School Trainer or Instructor Training Program trainer on GAP-style programs, or your work visa doesn’t permit you to work for CASI as an independent contractor). Attendance at the Evaluator Training courses will be beneficial in preparing you to train course candidates for their certification courses and exams. Evaluators conducting courses for CASI do so as independent contractors, and as such, must possess the appropriate visas and/or work permits to perform this type of work in Canada. It is the responsibility of the member to ensure that this is the case prior to applying to teach courses for CASI.

Apprenticeship / Rookie Program:

New CASI Level 1 Evaluators and existing CASI Evaluators who wish to further their level of certification (i.e.: Level 1 Evaluators who wish to become Level 2 Evaluators, etc.) are required to complete the Apprenticeship Program at the level which they are training. The Level 1 – 3 rookie process requires a minimum of two courses:

  • The first rookie course is an observational process, with limited teaching involvement. This may completed be with an experienced Evaluator (who has experience teaching a minimum of 3-5 courses at this level) who may not be an approved Mentor Evaluator.
  • The second rookie course must be completed with an approved Mentor Evaluator, and the rookie will be expected to present a large portion of the course.
  • Rookies and mentors should be in contact with each other prior to that second course, to discuss expectations, schedules, etc.
  • Level 3 Rookie Process: Observe on one Level 3 Exam, followed by two Level 3 Courses, as above.
  • Level 4 Process: Observe on one Level 4 Exam, followed by a minimum of one Level 4 Course, reviewed on a situational basis.
  • Rookie Evaluators will be considered certified at the new level when they receive a completed Rookie Report from an approved Mentor Evaluator.

Following the completion of the current season's Evaluator Training course, held each fall, individuals who wish to start the Apprenticeship Program must submit a completed Rookie Application Package. Approved rookie applicants will be contacted to coordinate upcoming courses that are available.
