How to be a Ski Instructor

Hi,

Just thinking about getting a ski instructor cert. Does anybody know whether it's better to get the Canadian one or the New Zealand one?

I know there are some courses tailored for such purpose but some courses last for weeks (I mean at least 4 and up to more than 8 weeks) while some, like that offered at Whistler, only last for 4 days (just course but not including exam).

Obviously, I couldn't afford to be away from home for weeks. Is it possible for me to take the course and then sit the exam within 7-10 days? Is Canada the better place?

Thanks

NZSIA (New Zealand) has Stage 1 and Stage 2. Now they need a pre-requsite called CSI (the Certificate in Ski instruction) - so now they have 3 levels.

CSIA has 4 levels. Level 1 is not too difficult, Level 2 is more difficult, Level 3 is very, very difficult and Level 4 is very, very, very difficult (there are only 2 % Level 4's)

I believe getting NZSIA's CSI is as easy/difficult as CSIA Level 1. Both only takes a few days. You get to learn as well as having an exam. afterwards.

The Rokie Academy is a 13 week course in New Zealand which is very long and expensive. You do not want to take that, but I guess once you enroll in that you are pretty much guaranteed a Stage 1 certification.

要13周,我想,只有想當職業教練,才有辦法這麼上課吧,太猛了。

下次有機會到紐西蘭滑雪,一定要看看等級一的教練技術如何,聽說他們很嚴格的耶。:D

I did the Rookie academy 8 weeks course for both ski and snowboard and yes they are pretty tough

CSI is pretty similar to CSIA 1, it goes through how to teach ski at a beginer level.

It's not that hard to pass. but there is quite a jump from CSI to stage 1

there is a HUGE jump from Stage 1 to stage 2 (there is only a 5 % pass rate for stage 2 exams)

Which one is better depends on where you want to work with your certification. If you just want to become a better skier, both are good. CSIA level 1 is equivalent to CSI in New Zealand.

The CSIA 1 is 4 days including the exam. Most courses are Thu-Sun or Fri-Mon. You just need to take a long weekend off to attend the course. However, if you fly from HK, you may experience flight lag before the course.

Just check the snowpro.com web site for CSIA course description. Date will be posed in early fall.

Thanks a lot forall your replies.

Good to hear that the 4-day course includes the exam as I was just wondering whether the course would fit into a exam date.

Have gathered some info about CSIA course and course outline etc. from the web. Planning to spend 7-10 days including travelling time to Canada, most like Whistler.

Thanks again.

Last season, I've organized CASI 1 on the same weekend with CSIA 1 at my ski resort. However, the CSIA 1 were in two conservative weekends which is not good for your schedule. I recommend you to register the level 1 course during Christmas or at the end of season. It is because most candidates take the course during these periods, so the possibility of course cancellation are much less. Like last season, there were 3-4 CSIA 1 groups on the same week at Tremblant. Since level 1 courses are registered through regional co-ordinator, you should contact them directly to get the course date.

In fact, when I moved last year, I have packed a box of instructor and coach material. If you are interested, I can sell you this material. Most of them are in good shape because I have new material every season. These material are books and CD/DVDs from CSIA.

If you want to take the course on Whistler. i got a friend who may help you to pre-train you more ready for the course. I know he helped "GT FISH's Big Brother" getting his CSIA 2. and he doesn't charge too much. I think only CAD $100.00 Half day on Whistler.

The Lv-1 courses at Whistler are consecutive days. The last day will be the exam day. Depends on your ski level, it maybe tough physically.

There are courses at local mtn close to Vancouver which has courses at weekends (Sat/Sun and next Sat/Sun). That was the one I took before which is easier, I consider. However, if you plan to stay at Whistler, it may not be an alternative.

Mckay, who is "that friend" which charge $100 only :p. Haha..

Interesting subject, I would like to get certified for L1 as well. What's the quickest, cheapest way to do so? I used to ski 60days+ on slope/ season for a many years until I started working in HK + China. I used to teach many classmates (advance beginners) parallel turns for beers, including past trips in Japan. Just want to get an official certificate as I am going to get involve in winter sports gears & accessories.

Is it possible to join one of the tours to Whistler & take the exam during the trip?

Thank you in advance for all the good advice & information.
