It's not only's FUN! The CSIA offers four certification levels, in addition to prep training courses and professional development sessions along with hosting of on-snow regional events during each season. These levels represent a progression of skills and knowledge. Level 1 courses are administered by the Regional Committees under the technical guidelines established by the Education Committee. All other levels are administered by the National Office, based out of Montreal, Quebec.

Anyone who wishes to become a regular member of the CSIA must attend and pass a certification course.
