Welcome to PSIA-AASI NRM

In NRM it is our goal to provide snowsports professionals the training and support to develop both personally and professionally. Whether you teach on the snow part time or full time, or at a large or small area, and regardless of the tool on your feet, our purpose is to support you in your job. We do this by:
  • Giving you the tools you need to excel
  • Offering educational events to improve your skills as a skier, rider and instructor
  • Providing a system of certification for instructors that rewards and recognizes three levels of achievement in teaching and skiing/riding
  • Providing professional credibility for members, both with the general public and within ski area management
  • Keeping you up to date as our sports and our industry change

Please use this website as a resource. The links across the top provide membership, event and contact info and the links on the left provide discipline specific information to help you navigate your way through the certification and professional development process.

If you cannot find the info you are looking for contact the NRM division office at or the PSIA-AASI national office at

Sign up for the Movement Matrix as if you are purchasing, and the fee will be $0. You will be asked to update two member profile items (e-mail and date of birth) if these fields are incomplete. View specific instructions about how to access the Movement Matrix.
