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.
