Who Should Take This Course?

You should take this course if you are a Level 1 instructor with a love of freestyle snowboarding. You should have a desire to introduce new students to snowboarding in the park safely and successfully. You should also be confident and comfortable both communicating and demonstrating in front of a group.

Am I Ready?

The Park Instructor Level 1 standards require you to pass both riding and teaching evaluations. In order to help you achieve success on the course, we suggest you take the following steps in preparation, if they are available to you:

  • Spend time working as an instructor, honing your presentation and class management skills.
  • Take a session with a current CASI Park Level 1 Evaluator to get feedback on your riding ability in relation to the technical standard.

You may also take the Park 1 course as a non-testing participant. Participate in the course and improve your teaching and riding skills without participating in the exams. Non-testing participants will not receive the Park 1 certification but at the completion of the course will receive a certificate of participation.

Cost:

$285.00 / Retest $122.00
*$25.00 late fee added if registered after the deadline date. Taxes and lift tickets are not included in course fees.

Pre-requisites:

  • Current CASI Level 1 Instructor
  • Must be fluent in either English or French
  • Able to demonstrate comfortable and safe riding skills on intermediate terrain, as well as basic terrain park features.

Description:

The CASI Park Instructor certification course is open to members with a minimum Level 1 Instructor Certification. Candidates on the course will spend time exploring snowboarding technique and teaching methods as they relate to introductory terrain park and freestyle snowboarding.

The Park Instructor course is an introductory course, designed to give successful candidates the skills necessary to introduce students to the terrain park and freestyle snowboarding safely. Progression-based teaching methods, understanding of basic freestyle techniques, as well as lesson planning and effective communication skills will be addressed. Candidates will receive coaching on their snowboarding, as well as feedback on their teaching skills, with the goal of reaching the Park Instructor standard in both of these areas. They will also receive suggestions and strategies for long-term development. The successful candidate is certified to take students into freestyle terrain, and teach introductory / basic manoeuvres on beginner terrain park features.

Course Duration:

2 days totalling a minimum of 12 hours (including evaluations).

Do I have to be an Instructor first before taking the Park Instructor 1 course?

Yes, you'll need to be a minimum Level 1 instructor.

How good do I have to be to pass the Park course?

The Park Instructor Level 1 course is aimed at giving you tools to take students into the park for the first time safely. You won't be hitting the big lines, but will be focusing on basic skills on the small features, and improving your teaching skills. Check out the Park Instructor video and Course Guide for more info.
