Casi Levels 1 & 2 Snowboard Instructor Course

13 Weeks – Panorama, Canada – £7400

If you want to be a snowboard instructor enrol on our 13 week snowboard instructor course and gain your internationally recognised CASI level 1 and level 2 qualifications.

The programme starts in early January, so you’ll be fully qualified by March, enabling you to work as a snowboard instructor back in Europe before the snow melts or stay on for an extra week or two in Canada.

As soon as you are qualified we can arrange interviews for you with our European partners who often recruit newly qualified instructors in time for their busy periods in March and April.*

Back-to-back success in both courses comes from the quality and consistency of the training, from some of Canada’s best Level 3 and 4 instructors. Designed for all riders, you will train for every day and spend at least one day a week  alongside Panorama Snow School giving you plenty of opportunity to refine your teaching skills. If you’ve got determination and the drive to succeed and you’re competent on European blue runs, this is the snowboard instructor course for you!

Panorama Mountain Village enjoys some of the most dramatic scenery in Canada, so you’ll be enjoying week after week of boarding on some of the most amazing terrain in the world. Plus, your accommodation is right in the village – so you can ride almost to the door.

Optional Extras

Extend your stay for £350 a week and you can enjoy a variety of additional activities – free riding, heli-boarding or other on-snow qualifications such as park courses and/or avalanche course.
