SKI ACADEMY SWITZERLAND - ISIA TRAINING


Welcome to the ISIA instructor page where you will find details about further training including ISIA boot camps (for all systems), teacher training, internships, bump, PSIA educational updates and exams. This page is purely for qualified instructors wishing to take their training further whether it be as a technical or teaching focus.


ISIA Bootcamps

The ISIA 'boot camp' is available for all ISIA instructors in any system. This no nonsense course ranges from 1 to 4 weeks and will purely concentrate on the technical aspect of your skiing to reach your goal of the ISIA standard by the end of course. The boot camp will include all the strands needed for the ISIA level including bumps, high speed, variable terrain, lower end teaching progressions and piste performance. Each student will receive personal development focusing on problem areas within their own skiing.


The course will be delivered throughout the season and in resorts where they have the most variable and challenging conditions for the ISIA level.


The ISIA boot camp includes (per week):

  • 30 hours Personal Skiing Performance per week
  • 6 hours off snow analysis
  • End of course plan of action

Costs per week: £250 course fees only


Pre-requisites
Students need to have their first alpine level qualification (e.g. PSIA Level 1 or BASI Level 2) before applying to the course. Please be aware that the course is a technical course where we ski hard and fast and don't stand around talking in groups so a certain amount of fitness is essential!


ISIA Teacher Training

The ISIA Teacher Training weeks are available for all aspirant ISIA instructors in any system. This one week course will purely concentrate on the teacher training aspect of the ISIA. The teacher training week will give ample time for instructors to experiment and to work out the most effective way of teaching and improving their fellow peers within the group in a non threatening environment. This will include creative teaching, teaching movement and skills and movement assessment during the week. Each student will receive feedback on their teaching sessions appropriate to the ISIA level.


The courses will be delivered throughout the season and in resorts where they have the most variable and challenging conditions for the ISIA level.


The ISIA boot camp includes (per week):

  • 30 hours Personal Skiing Performance per week
  • 6 hours off snow advice including drills, action plans and lesson planning
  • End of course plan of action

Costs per week: £250 course fees only


Pre-requisites
Students need to have their first snow level qualification (e.g. PSIA Level 1 or BASI Level 2) before applying to the course. It is advisable before attending this course that students read their governing body technical and teaching manual so maximum benefit is achieved throughout the week.

A typical week's course includes:

  • 25 hrs + Personal mogul ski performance
  • Video Analysis
  • Evening feedback sessions (optional)
  • SAS evaluation and debrief

We have many programmes to suit and these can vary in length from 1 to 4 weeks focusing on clients specific needs. Please contact the office for a tailored programme.
