Nordic Exam Prerequisites

Preparing for Level II

Level II Certification is a two-day process. Obtaining your level I Certification in Telemark and/or transferring from another discipline in Level I-III is needed first. A prerequisite course must be taken in the season that you are taking your Level II Exam.

The prerequisites for the Level II Exam can be your choice of any of the upgrades/specialty events. There are diverse topics and areas for you to gain the necessary requirements to round out your training needs. Each season we do offer an Exam Prep Clinic. This will review situations and activities that will be used in the skiing, teaching, professional knowledge and written sections. It is a great place to ask questions about the standards and what will be expected of you. This clinic will give you a flavor of what the exam is like.

You have the freedom to choose other clinics that may help you in movement analysis, teaching, personal skiing improvement and off-piste skiing. It is suggested to crossovers from other disciplines that the exam clinic would be the best for you if you have not participated in any Telemark event prior to this one. The Exam Prep Clinic is not a cram course before the exam. You should be prepared with questions and specific needs that will help you meet the standards. At the beginning of this event each individual is surveyed for their own needs and then the clinic outline for the two days is dictated by that. A broad overview of the exam is also included.

Each season the Nordic Coordinator submits a detailed course listing and description of the events in the Snow Pro. Browse it and find out what your specific needs might be before participating in the exam.
