One of the pre-requisites for the Level 3 ISIA Technical and Teaching courses is 200 hrs Teaching Experience. These hours must be completed between successful completion of the Level 2 Instructor qualification and commencement of the Level 3 ISIA Technical or Teaching courses of the Level 3 ISIA qualification. These hours can be completed on a dry slope or indoor snow slope or in a mountain environment. It is recommended that some or all of these hours relate to the Telemark discipline however hours in any discipline will be accepted. A maximum of 50 of these hours can be coaching hours and a maximum of 35 hours can be completed at slopes using Maxxtracks technology, such as Skiplex or Chel-ski**.
Please Note: The 200 logged, signed teaching hours (shadowing hours will not be accepted) must be on your Snowsport School headed paper or other official document and signed by the Snowsport School Manager or Director to demonstrate proof that you have completed this requirement.
Students should have completed their teaching hours prior to booking the Level 3 ISIA Teaching or Technical course with the office to ensure they are accepted.
It is recognised that some people may wish to book onto a course before completing all the hours. In order to accommodate this, BASI will accept a booking on the Level 3 ISIA Teaching or Technical prior to receiving the 200 hours, however it must be stressed that:
If all the signed teaching hours are not received at the BASI office TWO weeks prior to commencement of the course, then you will not be eligible to attend the course and there will be no refund.
** Due to the nature of these slopes the instructor should always be mindful of how their lesson could be given on a dry slope or indoor snow slope where there are more slope users and a change of terrain (angle and underfoot conditions). Clients should be given instruction in accordance with the FIS code, particularly with regards to safety.
