After extensive world class training you will accomplish the Anwärter (level 1 & 2) qualification. During this part of the course our coaching team will focus on your own performance and technique on piste, elevating your skiing to the next level and gaining an in depth understanding of your body positioning and balance on skis.
Once you have cracked level 2 we will move on to tackle advanced ski techniques required for Landeslehrer (level 3). You will receive high intensity ski coaching including performance on-piste, mogul skiing and off-piste training required to get you ready for the Landes 1 exams (level 3, part 1).
During this no-holds barred course we will also include a Snow and Avalanche Module, Intro to Ski Touring, Ski Tuning and Servicing Workshop, Ski Biomechanics and lots and lots of fun and après!
SPLIT COURSE VARIATIONS:
Those booked onto a split date course should hold a legal right to work in Austria (EU citizen or suitable visa) and will receive a split-phase training schedule where after gaining your Anwärter Licence, you will head straight off to your guaranteed ski instructor job in a top Austrian ski school before returning to the Academy in March to complete the Landes 1 instructor course. If you do not wish to work, you can still join the split date course without the legal right to work.

“What a great experience, the best coaches I’ve ever had! Would advise any friends and family to do it, also the best value for money of all the options I researched. Sehr gut!”
The coaches and examiners are second to none, offering the best advice and guidance (special shout outs to Jamie, Anne and Martin!) And to top it all off, I am now a Landes 1 Lehrer! If you are looking to be a ski instructor, choose SIA!
I loved every second of it! Fantastic coaches for skiing and boarding, would definitely recommend Ski Instructor Academy to anyone thinking of becoming an instructor or furthering their instructor qualifications.
The course was outstanding, the teaching level was unbeatable, the location was superb and the instructors and people that are part of the SIA team are remarkable… I wish I could do it all over again!
