The CST’s objective is “to develop and certify persons to administer the CS1 and CS2 assessment-based certificate programs and to lead clinics specific to the needs of children and children’s instructors”. The CST is being used as one of the benchmarks to ascertain the readiness of qualified professionals to serve on Intermountain’s Children’s DECL team. Evaluative Criteria: Although the CST program is not a certification, participants will be expected to exceed: (1) the levels of competency defined by the Children’s Specialist 1 and 2 (CS1/CS2) National Standards, and (2) the knowledge and performance standards of their current discipline certification level. Participants must: (1) demonstrate a thorough understanding of the CS standards and concepts; (2) be able to effectively communicate CS concepts to others, and (3) be able to demonstrate and apply effective training techniques in a clinic setting. Because the CST is an assessment-based evaluative program, to receive the CST designation, participants must: Receive an 80% score (out of 100%) on the CST Workbook Demonstrate the ability to apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate CS concepts in a variety of presentation settings Receive a “meets standards” evaluation based on your participation at the CST event Receive a “meets standards” evaluation on your on-snow and indoor presentations at the CST event In regards to the on-snow presentations, participants should be prepared to: Lesson Plan Overview: What are your goals and objectives?
