No one likes exams, however, the snowboard/ski instructor exams will help you on your way to your qualification and life as an instructor! We’ve been running ski and snowboard instructor courses (ft. exams) for over 10 years, so are confident we know how to help you pass.

Is there any written work on the course?

No. You will have to fill in some work sheets and you will have to refer to the course manuals provided by BASI, CSIA, CASI, NZSIA or SBINZ but, other than that, all the work you do and all your assessments will be done on your skis or snowboard on-snow!
