Entry Level (EL) Para Coach Pathway


  • Start by completing the Entry Level Course . You must be 15 years of age on the first day of the course, no exceptions.
  • Then complete the Para Module for EL PARA TRAINED status.


  • Progress to EL PARA CERTIFIED status if you will be coaching more than a season at the "Skiers Essentials" development level.
  • Progress to the Development Level (DL) PARA program if you will be working with more advanced para-alpine athletes.
