For members who started the Level II exam process prior to April 15, 2012 the requirements will be under the “former” exam format. Note: Beginning the exam process is defined as passing either the On Snow Skiing exam (formerly called part 1) or passing the online professional knowledge exam. Either of these must have been successfully completed prior to April 15, 2012 in order to continue the Level II exam process under the “former” exam format, with continuous active membership.

**All exam requirements must be attained prior to registering for the On Snow Teaching exam (or the 3-day combined exam).

Note: The CS1 course is an approved prerequisite course. If a member desires to use the CS1 course for the required exam prerequisite course then the CS1 must be attained within the exam prerequisite time requirement.

Note: Current Level II members in good standing are not required to have their CS1 credential prior to taking the CS2 course. However, it is strongly recommended that members complete the CS1 workbook. This will help members determine if they should take the CS1 course. Unless you are an experienced children’s instructor, taking the CS2 course without the CS1 credential is a very difficult task.
