Ski instructor courses
Training to be a ski or snowboard instructor has to be a real commitment if you want to take it seriously. You can find out more about how ski instructor courses can be taken with different countries exam boards, and the different levels of qualification, in our articles below. But basically, if you want to teach in an international mountain resort, rather than on a dry slope or indoor dome, then you need to be at least level 2 qualified. The ski instructor courses above will help improve your technical ability as a skier or snowboarder, and give you the teaching skills to be able to help newcomers to the sport enjoy their time on the piste. The courses are not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for – an incredible experience that can last as much as three months, and set you up for a reasonably well paid career in snowsports education. Popular courses take place in New Zealand, Canada and Austria, with some having links to ski schools that actually guarantee you qualifications, paid work and real teaching experience all within a single season!
