Ski Resort Workers
Entry-level jobs such as clerks, wait staff, and ski lift operators do not require certification. However, you must be certified to qualify as a professional ski instructor. Professional Ski Instructors of America offers certification in three categories: Adaptive, Alpine, and Nordic. Certification consists of skill tests, further education, and on-the-job experience. Satisfactory completion of a national certification exam is also required. Ski instructors must be recertified every one to two years, depending on the region in which they teach.
