The starting point on any journey to develop yourself further and to gain your qualifications is Level 1.

Level 1 is “is the entry-level instructor’s course aimed at people interested in joining the snow sports industry.”

If you can ski all over the mountain then Level 1 is a great place for you to start. You will be assessed on your own skiing standard, your ability to teach, and your ability to demonstrate skills appropriate to beginners (i.e. doing Wedge Turns).

The great thing about doing Level 1, no matter what level of skier you are, it not only gives you a qualification but the training gives you a solid foundation and knowledge to understand what good high-level skiing is all about.
