Certification and Testing
Level 100 Moguls Certification
The Level 100 moguls certification is recommended for any USSA coach working with moguls skiers. There are two parts to Level 100 certification:
Both requirements must be completed, and the coach must be a current USSA member, to be certified. A coach may take the exam before becoming a USSA member, but will not receive certification credit until USSA membership is completed.
USSA accepts most accredited First Aid and CPR certifications, such as the American Red Cross. You may contact your club, ski patrol or local clinic to see if courses are available in your area, or we also recommend the ASEP Sport First Aid course for the First Aid requirement. Send copies of your First Aid and CPR certifications to USSA Sport Education by email at email@example.com or fax 435.940.2790.
