The Most Complete ISIA Ski Instructor Training Zermatt
Our ISIA Level 3 ski instructor course runs in Zermatt throughout the winter season, from December to April.
The reason behind the choice
We have created the ISIA Training Programme because we saw there was a problem in the careers of ski instructors. Everyone was doing the same thing, everyone was delivering the same thing. In order to create what we deliver today we actually had to leave the established businesses for which we were running training for and set up our own.
Today we belive in what we do because we understood that, as ski instructors, we needed that extra edge, that little more to stand out. This is what we aim for, help instructors going a little beyond the rest, a little beyond themselves. By doing so we happen to be innovating the offer of ski instructor training programmes.
The Work Opportunties
Participants of our ISIA Level 3 team have exclusive access to ski jobs in some of the best private ski schools in Switzerland and Europe. As our partners rely on us to find their new instructors; these positions are only available to our team members. We work with the highest paying ski schools in the country, guaranteeing the best deal to instructors. Teaching is available at Christmas, New Year, Feb Half Term and Easter. While hours are not guaranteed, previous generations of team members have easily reached up to 200 hours in a season.
Our ISIA Ski Instructor Training Zermatt
The aim of the programme is to educate the next generation of instructors. Not just people that we would be proud to have in our partner schools. But high level professionals that will find open doors across the ski industry. We want to make the difference in your career.
To do that we have gathered a team of coaches with a broad experience in ski teaching, coaching and business management. A comprehensive programme delivered by a pool of experts in each field.
Our aim is to make you progress in your skiing and ski career. Going above and beyond the requirements for the ISIA modules.
How we do it
