On Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 16 and 17, examiners from PSIA's Central Office, in Michigan, travelled to Paoli in order to administer the PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) test to Paoli Peaks' four candidates for the organization's Level 1 instructor rating.
After two days of skiing, testing, instructing and evaluating, all four candidates made the grade: Dan Briscoe, Kent Olinger, Chris Swank and Tom Nash. All four have been instructors at Paoli since the start of the current ski season.
During the same weekend, PSIA examiners held Level 2 prep and "refresher" clinics.
Congratulations to the Peaks' four newest PSIA-Certified Level 1 instructors!
