Course Description:
Children’s Specialist 1 is the entry-level children’s education course for PSIA and AASI, and it includes an evaluation component. The course includes a written workbook; skiing/riding and teaching scenarios; and a technical discussion regarding how children/young students learn and progress from the Beginner/Novice to Intermediate Zones. Upon arrival to the event, you will be asked to submit your completed CS workbook to the course conductor. If you do not have a completed workbook at this time, you will not be eligible to participate in the Children's Specialist course. The required workbook takes a significant amount of time to complete, please plan accordingly. Candidates must receive 80% or higher on workbook score given via online quiz. The CS workbook and quiz are available at https://lms.thesnowpros.org free of charge. Once you are logged in, go to My Account, and then My Learning, to see the content you already have access to. If you haven't done so already, you will need to complete a “purchase” process to access the CS Workbook. As you’re working on your workbook, please pay special attention to the instructions on how to save it so that you can come back and continue your work. When you are finished, click when prompted to download the PDF version, and print out the workbook to bring it with you to your event. There will be links to Teaching Logs, Essay Questions and Final Exam for your workbook. Please be sure to complete all steps. Please complete the workbook as soon as you can. It’s not hard, but it does take thought and time. Some questions specifically reference information in the current Children’s Instruction Manual, so it is suggested to have a copy nearby. Some of the questions are in essay form so the computer will not score these. The essay questions and fill-in-the-blank questions will be reviewed at your event.

PSIA-AASI Eastern Division
Event Participant Safety Policy

Skiing and riding are athletic and physically demanding activities. It is the expectation of PSIA-AASI Eastern Division that each participant attending an event or exam shall possess the requisite level of fitness and stamina to participate safely, on all appropriate terrain and at a pace consistent with other members of the group. As such, PSIA-AASI Eastern Division reserves the right to have education staff reassign participants in any event that may pose a risk to themselves or others or consistently impede the progress of the group to another, more skill and fitness-appropriate event. In such a situation, an appropriate event will be recommended and the member may be transferred to that event at no charge (other than any difference in event costs) or a full refund of the originally registered event will be provided.
