Sessions take place Monday to Friday, with on-sessions in the morning followed by video feedback giving you time to practice and cement what you have learnt each afternoon.

Every session will have a clear outline – a task / outcome will be set at the beginning of the session and the following two hours are dedicated to developing the task. You will receive feedback throughout the session and will be given a summary / personal action plan to improve, meaning you can put your feedback straight back into your skiing.

The training will prepare you well, and you will know what to expect in terms of terrain and task for your exams. Each student is given a coaching mentor who will monitor their progress and help the student to structure their practice time by regular debriefs and action plans.


The course will be based around the requirements of the exam. On the technical side, we will show you what you need to do to meet the requirements for:

  • Short turns
  • Medium radius turns
  • Variable and steep terrain skiing
  • Bumps and moguls

What’s next?

We will then set about helping you to meet the criteria and work on making the changes make you strong and convincing candidate for the exam.

After the course

As soon as you start your ISIA qualification you’ll realise that there’s no right way to complete your instructor qualifications – it is all about finding the way that is right for you.

For students who successfully complete their ISIA qualification as part of this course or any of our other programmes, we have our highly successful Verbier training team. This team combines work during the busy periods of the season with an intensive 6 week training programme leading up to the Level 4 tech and teach exams.

If spending a whole season training is not for you, then you should consider our exam prep weeks. Run by our Tech team which consists of BASI trainers, Eurotest openers and BASI demo team members these weeks are the perfect way to make the final changes before your exams.

We quite often find that upon completion of their ISIA students who did decide to join the Verbier training team quite often stay on and move into one of our French ski schools. In some cases going full cycle and running the same instructor course they started on.

Other Level 3 Courses to Consider

If our ISIA Prep Weeks aren’t right for you, then not to worry, we have other ISIA training courses that will help you get to your BASI level 3 Exam.
