ISIA REQUIREMENTS


As a member of the International Ski Instructors’ Association (ISIA), the CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance) has the authority to issue the ISIA minimum standard international stamp to CASI members. The stamp allows for an increased recognition of one’s competencies at the international level. There is no charge for the stamp.

 A minimum number of 320 hours of education is required to reach the ISIA minimum standard, including the following three mandatory programs:

  • CASI Level 3 or 4 Certification
  • Avalanche Skills Training (AST)
  • First Aid Certification (from a recognized organization such as Red Cross, St.John Ambulance, etc)

The hours of training to make up for 320 hours of education must be completed through CASI, or one of the following organizations: CSCF, CSIA, CSGA, CADS, CSCP or CANSI. Private training programs or snow school training programs are not eligible.
