Difference In Certification Testing

I am somewhat new to spey casting, but am very serious about eventually "key word eventually " becoming a certified casting instructor. Not so much to get paid to instruct someone, but to have a better understanding of every detail about two handed casting to improve my own casting. Also I feel the faster I began studying all the material that one would need to be familiar with to pass the exam, the better my casting would get while doing so. Not so long ago I worked as a snowboarding instructor for a few years and had to pass various examinations to do so. Obviously the concept of understanding your student and adapting your teaching style to that individual would play a huge role in both, but again I am mainly interested in doing this for myself than teaching others. Is there anyone out there who is a certified casting instructor that is also AASI or PSIA certified skiing/snowboarding instructor? If so how would you compare the casting certification exams to say a level II or III PSIA/AASI certification exam as far as how you go about being tested and the amount of knowledge you must know to do so? How would you compare it to a single hand casting instructor exam? I think I will begin looking into getting my single hand certification pretty soon as I feel my skill level in that department is good enough to begin studying exactly what I have to know/do to complete that examination in the next couple of months. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated or if you could at least point me in the direction of where to get this information.

I have gone through various levels of CSIA and CSCF certification(Canadian ski instructor/ski coach certification) as well as having the FFF masters and two handed certification. Indeed there are a lot of similarities and the amount of pre course prep is definately comparable.
