CSIA Level III Extended
International Ski Instructor

The Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance (CSIA) provide the internationally recognised ski instructor course and qualifications. The CSIA was established in 1938 and has around 26,000 members working world wide.

There are now hundreds of instructors working throughout Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Europe and Andorra, who gained or furthered their qualifications with our CSIA courses in Grandvalira.

New CSIA Level III Extended

After the success of the Levll II Extended which we have been running for two seasons, in 2006-07 it was decided to apply the same principles to the Level III. The extra hours of coaching will result in higher skill levels & much better pass rates.

This new course also now compliments the Andorran EFPEM requirements for extra hours.

CSIA Courses in Andorra

Please use the Course Information links below as a guide only. The information has been extracted from the CSIA website and relates to the course structures in Canada. In Andorra, although the Goals and Content amount to the same, there are differences to the Course Outline and Schedule.

New Education Credits - We will cover enough modules for everyone to achieve the required Educational Credits on the 5 day Level 3 Course. For those who feel they need the extra training before the 5 day Level 3 Course, then the Extended Course option will apply and again the modules offered on the Extended Courses in Andorra will cover the required Educational Credits (plus some extra modules depending on candidate progress). For those who want just Ski Training at Level 3 (with a view to taking the Level 3 Course/Modules at a later date or that have failed Level 3 Technical and need the additional training) then the 5 day Level 3 Training is an option (no Modules or Education Credits – just Training!)

The Level 3 Exam remains unchanged.  It is compulsory to sit the Level 3 Exam to achieve the full Level 3 qualification.   However you will keep the Education Credits you acquire on a Course (there is no time limit to progress to the Level 3 Exam anymore so you can take the Exam whenever you are ready – your Education Credits remain on your profile).   

If you have already taken part in a Level 3 Course in the past but failed or not proceeded to the Exam stage, then your Educational Credits have already been allocated to your Member profile.  You can go straight to the Exam.

The 'extended' course is 12 days and covers ALL the level 3 modules + a 2 day exam. Also all Indoor course work in Andorra usually takes place in the evenings.
