The Full Course Schedule
Before you begin training you will meet your mentors and meet your course mates at our Welcome weekend to break the ice and receive your course materials.
Week 1 is spent preparing for the Level 1 exam, working on your personal performance, teaching and revising ski theory. You will do full days of training with your mentor focusing your all round performance.
This is the real deal a full week with a BASI trainer who will assess your technical skiing and knowledge of BASI’s teaching models and methods. The exam runs for the whole week and the trainers role is to develop your knowledge of the sport while simultaneously ensuring you meet the ability requirements to pass the exam.
You can not pass or fail your BASI 1 on one run or teaching session, your performance over the whole week is taken into consideration. So if you have a bad run don’t let it get to you, it is not the end of the world and there is plenty of time to demonstrate just how good you are.
Weeks 3 – 6 are a real mix of personal performance training and off snow activities including
- Performance training with mentors
- Teaching practice
- First Aid Course
- Mountain Safety Courses
- Freeride and Off piste skiing with our in-resort specialists
- Child Protection Module
- Careers Seminar and CV support
- Assistance with finding work either for us or our friends and partners.
