Ski Level 2 Course

Throughout each of the 8 days of the course the Trainer will monitor your participation and performance. They will provide frequent, ongoing information to each student on their strengths, areas for change and how to make these changes.

During the course the Trainer and student formulate an ongoing action plan based on the student’s participation. During the course the Trainer is assessing your competence to teach beginners & intermediates as an Instructor within marked and open runs and within the structure of a ski school.

The written action plan provided by the Trainer at the end of the course aims to give students an agreed (between the Trainer and student) account of what students need to do to improve their performance and develop as a ski Instructor.

35 hours Snowsport School Experience

35 hours Snowsports School Experience is required for Level 1 Instructor Qualification. These hours ideally should be shadowing or teaching experience in a UK Snowsports centre after completing the Level 1 instuctor course. A maximum of 15 of these hours can be completed at slopes using Maxxtracks technology, such as Skiplex or Chel-ski**.

An additional 35 hours Snowsports School Experience is required for Level 2 Qualification. These hours are additional to the 35 hours completed as part of the Level 1 Qualification. The additional hours should ideally be completed after the Level 1 Qualification has been awarded and before attending the Level 2 instructor course (70 hours can be submitted to the BASI Team after completion of the Level 1 instructor course).

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.

Ski Level 2 Re-assessment

Course Price: £479
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 8 day Level 2 course.

If a candidate fails either the Teaching or Technical element of the course, they can book onto a 4 day Level 2 Re-assessment course.

If a candidate fails the 4 day Re-assessment course twice, they must complete the whole 8 day Level 2 course again.

Any candidate who needs to take a 4 day Re-assessment course is not allowed to book onto 4 days of the 8 day course and must book onto the 4 day re-assessment course. There might be possibilities to merge some re-assessment students onto the last 4 days of the 8 day courses. The BASI Team will contact students directly if this is a viable option in order to confirm the course.
