An experienced ski instructor has been hailed as an inspiration to students who took to the slopes this weekend to receive the first certification in their chosen field.
The Alta Ski Instructor Program (ASIP) has become a national movement with its focus on training students in skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing and cross-country skiing.
ASIP members typically start at about $500 a month and are given a certificate that includes the skills needed to take their ski classes to the next level.
The program, which was created by the Association of Ski Instructors of California, is the first ski instructor program in the country to offer the certificate.
The new certificate, which is called the Instructor Certification, will be issued by the ASIP Association of Directors of Ski Programs and will allow students to begin taking the ASI courses in the fall.
The certificate, expected to be completed in September or October, will allow them to take skiing and snowboarding classes in California, which currently has just four snowboarding courses and only one snowboard instructor.
The ASIP was founded in 2002 by Alta Snowboards and the company has since grown to include other industry leaders.ASIP is a certification program that teaches snowboarding and snow skiing to first-time snowboarders and will also offer snow tubing classes for experienced skiers.
Students will receive a certificate at the beginning of the ski season.
The certificate is expected to help students prepare for the next step in their careers.
The certification will be taught by instructors who have had extensive experience in their own snowboarding industry, said Mike Miller, ASIP’s president.
He said the certificate will help students gain the skills they need to take the next steps in their career.
“It’s important that people get the training and the certifications, the knowledge that they need,” Miller said.
“We want to build this as a community and get as many people involved as possible.”
A few years ago, ASIP was a $3 million a year program.
Now, it’s a national program.
Miller said the ASIMP is about expanding opportunities for snowboard instructors.
“What we’re trying to do is make ASI programs more competitive so that people are going to want to do that and want to go to the ski slopes, said Miller.
