This course is an introduction to ski instruction and the role of a ski instructor. It combines the basics of practical ski teaching methods with technical understanding.
The course is separated between teaching and skiing, where you will be assessed on your ability to teach new skiers from the basics through to a parallel turn. You will also be assessed on your ability to demonstrate a skiing technique to achieve this.
Over the 3 day exam you will improve upon your skiing demonstrations and teaching technique with the advice and guidance from course conductors. This will give you the necessary skills to successfully obtain a CSIA level 1 certification.
As a successful candidate you will be certified to teach entry level to intermediate parallel skiers.
The exam is set over 3 days, is fun, enjoyable and within a relaxed atmosphere. If you ever feel any pressure all you have to do is breathe in some mountain air and go for a free ski to clear your head! There is no stress in a mountain environment! You will be assessed over the 3 day period.
