Professional Instructor

Many BBP's will offer a full Gap course of between 10 -12 weeks that include a BASI Level 1 and Level 2 qualification but there are a huge variety of options available via BASI's  BP's. Some offer the opportunity to take a BASI Level 1 course or BASI Level 2 course individually with a period of preparation training beforehand. These BBP courses are shorter than traditional gap courses and are usually between 2 to 4 weeks in length. BBP's will also offer you assistance with accommodation, lift passes, half board, transfers and work experience, very often these will be included as part of your course programme. Please check carefully what is included when you book your programme. 

Lastly, some BBPs will also provide training programmes for those who are looking to make skiing or snowboarding their full time profession. These BBPs will take you beyond your BASI Level 2 qualification and prepare you for your Level 3 ISIA instructor qualification and onto the Level 4 ISTD instructor qualification. These training plans are developed around your needs.
