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-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: 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.
