Why not consider an internship where you can train and work all in one season. You’ll start your training on a standard course but with the extra bonus of a guaranteed job placement once qualified.

“Industry leaders”

George Smith - 26 Sept 2021

"These courses are without doubt the most professionally and articulately delivered from start to finish. The owner Rik will most likely be your first point of contact and in my case went well beyond my expectations to find exactly what I wanted and (my situation was slightly different given my experience and locational requirements) spent extensive time researching and helping me throughout. The course trainers level is also highest standard. The price matches the standard of training and accomodation and is well worth the total paid. Thanks so much Winter Sports company you’re the best choice I could have gone for".
