Professional Instructor Qualifications


So many people want to do gap year courses but want to earn money from the beginning; our pre-gap year course allows you to do just that! By offering you the chance to come out during your final years of study, you can not only improve on your skiing skills, but also build up your knowledge of ski instruction and the industry itself whilst working towards and ultimately completing your ski instructor qualification. This means that when you are finally free of school, you'll have a ready made qualification to hit the ground running... wherever you choose to run!


We’re here to offer you the chance of a lifetime - our Professional Instructor Qualifications (PIQ) - a chance to gain internationally renowned qualifications as a snowsports instructor allowing you to teach all over the world. Once qualified, we will provide you with many opportunities to use your new found skills throughout the winter season by working with our partner ski school right here in Austria! This will allow you to train and work in the same resort for the whole season! Come and make our home, your home for the rest of your life! See you on the mountains!


With school and college trips proving more popular than ever, we have seen a marked increase in trip leaders asking for help in order to gain an in depth knowledge of what might be required of them should they decide to organise such an excursion. Our Mountain Leader Courses are perfect for any teachers preparing for trips by furnishing them with knowledge and experience regarding practical mountain leadership as well as understanding the theory behind preparing themselves, their staff and their pupils, for what can be an intense week away.
