If working as soon as you’re qualified is your main aim check out our ski and snowboard internships. Internships include a guaranteed job as soon as you pass the level 1 ski or snowboard instructor exam. We have a 100% pass rate on this entry level exam.
Those on a ski instructor course or a snowboard instructor course are not guaranteed a job in the same season, however many of our previous clients return to resort the following season to work. As a trainee on a ski and snowboard instructor course, you spend months training within the sports school, so your name will become well known at the resort, meaning you’ll be top of the pile when applying for a job with the sports school.
It is possible to work the peak weeks in Europe after your instructor course. We have contacts in popular European resorts who need extra instructors during the Easter holidays. The minimum standard to work in most of Europe is level 2 – so doing an 11 week ski instructor course or an 11 week snowboard instructor course starting in November will allow you to train and work in same season.
We’ve also written an informative blog about Finding Your First Job which has some good advise about your next steps.
