Level 3 – ISIA Training

Level 3 – ISIA Training

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 them self. By doing so we happen to be innovating the offer of ski instructor training programmes.

The aim of our ISIA Training

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 doors open in every other business of 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

Based on sports coaching methodology, we have organised a training program that follows the structure used by professional sport teams. Adapted, of course, to the needs of a season-long ski instructor course and with qualified personnel working together.
Just like in a pro-team our team of Professional Coaches will deliver classes in their field.

Nothing is left in the hands of the inexperienced; we invest in the knowledge that a highly qualified and experienced team will bring you.

We are all there for you to get the best out of your next winter season.

Ski Instructor’s Exams

We try to run the training programme around the group needs as well as each individual’s needs. With that in mind we help you organize your exams calendar accordingly with your availability and current level. When possible we also organize exam dates in our or nearby resorts, to help you fitting dates around your needs and achieve as much as possible during the first season with us.
Based on participant’s requests we have organized BASI Adaptive Level 1 in Zermatt as well as IASI Mountain Safety L1, IASI Coaching Theory and helped people attending, amongst all other modules of the Level 3, also the ISIA Speed Test that runs in Zermatt every year.
With this strategy we have been able to help instructor achieving their ISIA Level 3 in nearly half the time of the average course providers! Please remember our course fee only covers the seasonal training and not the cost of any exam!
During the last few season we have also organized the IASI Mountain Security level 1 in Engleberg, achieving a 100% pass rate. In 2017/18 this module launched the ISIA team towards a season of successes. Team members participated to the the Tech, Teach and Coaching Theory modules, all with 100% pass rate!
In 2018/19 we have organized and run the IASI Race Coach Level 1, with yet another 100% pass rate from our team. This season has also seen some great success of former Level 3 trainees in their progress towards the Level 4. Our Matt Grundy passed the ISIA Speed Test and the IASI Level 4 Tech! Going from Level 2 to this with just two winters of training together.
