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).

** 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.
