BASI Instructor pathway

35 hours of ski school experience for BASI Level 2

Before you can attend the BASI Level 2 course, you must complete 35 hours of experience in a ski school. This can be done by either shadowing an instructor or teaching as a Level 1 instructor in an artificial environment.

Please note that these 35 hours are in addition to the 35 hours required to complete the Level 1 Qualification. Therefore there are 70 hours required between both Levels.

If you choose to do either the 6 week Gap Course or 10 Week Gap Course, these hours are included as part of the course.

Teaching/Snowsport School experience may include any of the following:

  • Understanding how bookings are taken and how people are selected into different standards
  • Shadowing experienced Instructors delivering lessons
  • Delivering lessons as per the constraints for the Level 1 Licence
  • Understanding how customer satisfaction is assessed and how dissatisfied customers are dealt with
  • Understanding how the Customer satisfaction procedures improve Instructor and administrational practises
  • Taking part in and understanding in house staff training for Instructors
  • Understanding how Snowsports Schools maintain Safety standards and maintain their currency of good practise
  • Understanding the Risk Assessment process that Snowsport Schools and Instructors take
  • Understand Accident and First Aid procedures including accident reporting

Students should provide a breakdown in writing of what they have covered during their Snowsport School experience, this should be on headed Snowsport School paper and be signed by the Snowsport School supervisor.

These hours can be covered in a mountain ski school or an artificial slope.
