Course Description:

Time: 3 Days
Credits: 18 Continuing Education Credits

Prerequisites: Minimum Certified Level II
Course Description:
This three-day exam will evaluate the candidates riding, teaching methodology and professional knowledge as compared to the AASI Level III National Standard. All candidates must pass the online Professional Knowledge exam and attend a prerequisite of their choice.
Learning Experiences:
On-hill sessions are planned each day and comprise the bulk of the course. The purpose of on-hill sessions is to test for knowledge and abilities in riding, teaching methodology, and professional knowledge. We accomplish this using a variety of formats.
The Education Staff member leading your group determines the format of the on-hill sessions. Expect each session to be different in the same way that you expect every client you teach to be different. On-hill sessions use a combination of teaching segments, one-on-one and group discussions, assigned tasks and problem solving as well as riding situations to determine all scores. Teaching segments will vary in type and time length over the three days. Typically, level 3 candidates may expect long teaching segments anywhere in length from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Typically level 2 candidates may expect long teaching segments anywhere in length from 8 minutes to 15 minutes. Additionally, ALL level 2 & 3 candidates may expect teaching segments set-up to include, but not limited to, quick-tips, roll-up teaching, assigned subjects, and pick-your-own subject.
Weather, mechanical problems, terrain, snow conditions, trail density and many other situations beyond our control may determine or alter the format of the on-hill sessions. This may include converting on-hill session time into additional indoor sessions. Prepare yourself to be flexible in order to perform well, given any circumstances that may arise.
