Instructor Academy

 

To become a Snowsports instructor at an indoor or dry slope, you’ll need a Level 1 instructor qualification.

If you would like to teach on the mountains, you may be able to do this in some ski resorts with a BASI or IASI Level 1 qualification, but you will mostly be required to have a Level 2 qualification.

Level 1 Ski or Snowboard Instructor Qualification

At The Snow Centre you can gain a Level 1 qualification 3 different organisations, BASI, IASI or SSE. If you are an experienced parallel skier or advanced level snowboarder you can become qualified to teach beginners to intermediate skiers/snowboarders of any age, at indoor slopes in the UK. If you are unsure of your ability or just want to get some extra practice before your instructor course, book onto one of our Skills Development Sessions where our coaches will be happy to assess your level and give you any pointers you may need before you start.

 

See the diagram below to find out which Level 1 course is right for you.

The word from the slopes

  • “My husband and 2 children had lessons this weekend to brush up for our holiday abroad. My kids loved the group lessons and made lots of progress. My husband and I took level 6 lessons and really benefited from the hints and tips on how to improve our skiing. Had lunch in the lodge too and it was quick (even in a busy period) and really tasty! Very reasonably priced too. Can't wait to hit the mountains now!”

  • “Top stuff Kids really enjoy very good experience and good people that work there. We will return for sure.”

  • “It was an enjoyable experience with my family, all staff were very helpful. It was my first time and I am sure we will visit you again”

  • “Clear, concise instructions and very supportive to all of the group the whole day. Great day out doing the 5 hour class. Lunch was yummy too! Very glad we had this beginner lesson before our holiday.”

  • “Joined the ski camp Holiday last week. It was well organized, my daughter learned a lot. Good experience. We will come back again.”
