  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    There's a lot to tell, these are some of the most frequently asked questions...

  • HOW DOES THE AUSTRIAN QUALIFICATION SYSTEM WORK AND WHERE IS IT RECOGNISED?

    The Austrian basic qualification (Anwärter) is globally the most recognised “Higher” Level 1 Qualification, allowing you to teach on piste in a ski resort. You will have very little issue finding work in Austria through Ski Instructor Academy’s contacts and Job Guarantee and people are working in resorts around the world with this Level 1 license, including countries such as USA, Canada, South America, New Zealand and South Africa demonstrating how recognised it is.

    WILL I HAVE ACCOMMODATION WHEN I’M WORKING?

    During your training period your accommodation will be provided by SIA as an inclusive part of your course fees. After your course you will leave your SIA Accommodation and head off to your Ski School who will provide accommodation as part of your employment package (where applicable).

  • WILL THERE DEFINITELY BE SNOW SO EARLY ON IN THE SEASON?

    Kaprun is a Glacier resort and reaches over 3000m high. The snow conditions on the Glacier are excellent from mid October right through until June.

    What Is A Higher Level 1 Qualification?

    Not all snow sports qualifications are equal.

    The Level 1 Austrian Anwärter cannot be compared to a BASI Level 1 for example. Level 1 BASI qualifies it’s Instructors to work on artificial slopes only, where as Level 1 Austrian Instructor would enable you to work like a BASI 2 Instructor in a mountainous environment. This is why the Austrian Anwärter Qualification is described as a Higher Level 1. The average cost of a Level 1 & 2 Instructor Course with companies offering other international qualifications is €8,900 and yet you can earn a comparable, and arguably more useable qualification for less than €5,000 or even project yourself half way through the ISIA standard for less than the €7,200 with Ski Instructor Academy.

  • DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY OWN EQUIPMENT?

    Yes, you do need your own equipment. If you do not have your own skis and boots etc. we strongly recommend that you buy them out here! If any problems occur with boots or skis, we can deal with it straight away. We work together with Intersport Bründl, a preferred training partner of the Academy to get you the very best equipment for the very best prices and expert fitters will be on hand to ensure you receive honest and professional advice.

    WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

    Our courses are truly comprehensive and designed to offer the best value to you. We include everything that is within our reasonable control and depending on your accommodation choice, the only thing that is not included is your travel to Kaprun and your spending money.

    WHERE IS MY ACCOMMODATION LOCATED?

    Your course has a number of excellent accommodation options and all are located in the centre of Kaprun itself, perfect for the ski lifts, shops and aprés ski.

  • HOW DOES THE SIA JOB GUARANTEE WORK’?
