Ski Academy Scotland - UK Ski Instructor Course

We will be offering the PSIA Level 1 qualification on our fast-track programmes an international recognised ski instructor qualification which allows successful candidates to teach from beginner to intermediate zones in an Alpine environment. Successful candidates have the opportunity of ski instructor work (depending on demand) following the course in Scotland or the Alps.

The ski academy coaches will provide a constant personal development ski and teaching programme including video feedback sessions and lectures to make sure you are full prepared for the exam. This will include video sessions, teaching sessions, stepping stones, mountain safety, bumps and piste performance.

We will be basing the courses in the United Kingdom's premier ski resort of Aviemore. These courses can either be residential or non-residential and will be delivered over a 7 day period.

Ski School Employment

Ski Academy works with some of the best and busiest ski school around Europe. All the ski schools that are connected with Ski Academy are successful and earned top awards in their own field. We will be working with three main ski schools which are Oberschneider, Wengen and Aviemore School of Snowsports which are one of the biggest in their respective countries.

Students can be expected to teach all kinds of levels and all kinds of people from the young to the old with the majority of the work over the peak season (Christmas, half term and Easter). As with all ski schools flexibility is the key.
