Thursday June 30, 2016 - Email this article to a friend

The Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors is offering a Level 1 course spread across 2 weekends at the Hemel Hempstead indoor Snow Centre.

It is the first step on the ski instructor ladder and the 5-day course is being spread over 2 weekends so people only have to take 1 day off work.

It runs later this month: Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th July and then the following weekend on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of July.

"The programme will be run over consecutive weekends, with only one weekday required, so ideal for those who do not wish to use too much annual leave," said Pete Gillespie from the Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors, IASI.

To gain full Level 1 qualification people will also need to do a 2 day first aid course, complete 20-hours of shadowing (assisting instructors) that can be organised free of charge though The Snow Centre and obtain a CRB (Criminal records check) certificate.

For further details on the course and what it entails then see the web site of the Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors.

The level 1 licence is one of the recognised qualifications to teach in an indoor centre and forms the starting point for further qualifications if people wish to teach out in the mountains.

IASI is a recognised training and awarding body delivering Snowsport qualifications.

It is recognised by the International Ski Instructors Association, ISIA, and the International Federation of Snowsports Instructors which gives worldwide recognition of its qualifications.
