35 hours Snowsport School Experience

A further 35 hours minimum of shadowing/teaching experience is required as part of the Level 2 Instructor Qualification. These hours need to be completed after the Level 1 qualification and before attending the Level 2 Instructor Course. They must be submitted to the BASI office 5 days prior to commencing the Level 2 Instructor Course. Ideally these hours should be teaching on a dry slope or indoor slope or shadowing an instructor in a snowsport school in Europe. A maximum of 6 of these hours can be completed at slopes using Maxxtracks technology, such as Skiplex or Chel-ski**.

If all signed hours are not received at the BASI Office FIVE days prior to commencement of the course, then you will not be eligible to attend the course and there will be no refund. It is your responsibility to organise this in a timely manner.

Students should provide a breakdown in writing of what they have covered during their Snowsport School experience, this should be on headed Snowsport School paper and be signed by the Snowsport School supervisor.

** 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.

Alpine Level 2 Re-assessment

Re-assessment extension

Re-assessments should be taken within a 2 year period. However, due to Covid-19, BASI recognises that members have struggled to attend re-assessment. Therefore, BASI have granted an extension by one year for members who were required to complete the re-assessment (within 2 years of the date of the course failed) before September 2021. Members now have until September 2022 to complete the re-assessment. 

Course Price: £435
Re-Assessments must be taken within 2 years of the date of the course failed, otherwise the candidate will be required to pay for and attend the whole course again.

If a candidate fails both the Teaching and the Technical elements of the course, they must retake the whole 10 day Level 2 course.

If a candidate fails either the Teaching or Technical element of the course, they can book onto a 5 day Level 2 Re-assessment course.

If a candidate fails the 5 day Re-assessment course twice, they must complete the whole 10 day Level 2 course again.

Any candidate who needs to take a 1 week re-assessment is not allowed to book onto 1 week of the 10 day course but must book onto the 5 day re-assessment course.

NB: If you would like some additional training before attending the Level 2 Re-assessment, there is an optional, 5 day Training course (Alpine Level 2 Performance Training). Students booking the Alpine Level 2 Performance Training course at the same time as the Alpine Level 2 or the Alpine Level 2 re-assessment course running in the same resort the following week, will receive a discount of £50 off the Alpine Level 2 Performance Training. Please contact the office to make your bookings and to get the discounted price.
