Am I Ready?

The Park Instructor Level 1 standards require you to pass both riding and teaching evaluations. In order to help you achieve success on the course, we suggest you take the following steps in preparation, if they are available to you:

Spend time working as an instructor, honing your presentation and class management skills.
Take a session with a current CASI Park Level 1 Evaluator to get feedback on your riding ability in relation to the technical standard.
You may also take the Park 1 course as a non-testing participant. Participate in the course and improve your teaching and riding skills without participating in the exams. Non-testing participants will not receive the Park 1 certification but at the completion of the course will receive a certificate of participation.
