what makes this programme so special?
Through 28 days of high end training and exams, this programme will lead you to the official Austrian qualification of "Skilehrer Anwärter" enabling you to teach in Austrian Ski Schools and all around the world. This course provides the ultimate opportunity for you to learn and improve your skiing through some of Austria's top pros who ski and snowboard on Kitzsteinhorn Glacier up to 10 months a year!
All the trainers are professional, full time Austrian instructors who have the highest level of national ski instructor certification, theoretical knowledge and speak fluent English.
As part of the programme, a German language course is included for basic conversation. There is no need to know German before the course, but you must be motivated to learn the basics during the course as it will be part of the exams.
The German lessons may be held on some of your days off but there will be days when you are completely free too. Learning the basics of German will provide additional benefit to you.
