Telemark Level 2 Qualification

Modules required for Level 2 Qualification:

Telemark Level 2 Course

Course Price: £699

This is a 10 day on-mountain training and assessment course in which Technical and Teaching skills are developed and assessed.

The Level 2 Instructor course has been designed to help you gain the skills and ability to teach people to telemark on snow. This course follows on from the Level 1 Instructor course. The course is physically demanding, as you will spend two blocks of five days involved in lectures, self study, telemark technical skiing and teaching. While it is not necessary to be an amazing athlete it does help to have a good level of personal fitness which in turn helps to reduce fatigue and the potential for injury.

On successful completion of all training, students will have developed their technical competency and understanding of the underlying principles of safe and appropriate ski teaching. Telemark Level 2 Instructors can teach Telemark skiing within the confines of a patrolled ski area only and should not lead mountain tours without another qualification. e.g. Winter Mountain Leader in the UK. Individuals who do not reach the required level may be required to resit all or part of the course.

Re-assessment £499

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 the Teaching or Technical element of the Telemark Level 2 course, they can book onto 5 days of the 10 day Telemark Level 2 course, or L2/L3 combined course: week 1 is for technical re-assessments and week 2 is for teaching re-assessments. There is no limit to the number of re-assessments allowed on each course. If a candidate fails the re-assessment twice, they must complete the whole 10 day Level 2 course again.

35 hrs 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.
