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 Skiplex**.

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 the Skiplex slope 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.
