We highly recommend reviewing the National Standards.

We have added an optional Alpine Intro to Level I Webinar designed to help instructors prepare for the Level I assessment! With the introduction of the Learning Connection Model and the Unified Assessment Form, the Level I assessment has evolved significantly. Held on the evening of the third Wednesday of each month, starting in November, this two-hour webinar is just the thing you'll need to know how to prepare for the assessment. You'll go over the format, review the Unified Assessment Form, get an introduction to the Learning Connection Model and the Skiing, Teaching and People Skills, talk through some samples of the skiing activities in which you will be assessed, and have plenty of time to ask questions. Please join us for this informative webinar and know before you go! It is highly recommended you complete the "Course for New Instructors" and "Alpine Level I eLearning" courses. These courses are free online at You can register for this optional webinar at
