BASI Level 4 training

Below is the Technical Assessment Criteria for the BASI Alpine Level 4 ISTD. You need to be able to perform at the level in the areas listed below and should centre your training around this. Training you receive from ICE on a Performance and Preparation course, will focus on these areas and will look at these outcomes relative to your performance to ensure you get the most from the course.

Performance and Preparation courses are taught exclusively by BASI Trainers who work with the Assessment Criteria all the time so are fully of where the level lies and is in a position to offer advice as to where your level is. Please consult your trainer at any stage during a course for an appraisal on your level next to the criteria.
