Skiing hard, fast, and dynamically, while learning how to move and teach at the next level — the Austrian Landes 1 qualification is an intense and advanced level Ski Instructor Qualification that will push you to your absolute limits.

After gaining your Anwärter qualification, the Landeslehrer qualification (Level 3) becomes your end goal. The Landeslehrer is split into three sections, Landes 1 course (level 3, part 1), Landes 2 course (level 3, part 2), and the Alpinkurs. They are each of great interest to ski schools around the World. Those who reach the Austrian Landes 1 qualification are in an elite group of less than 20% of ski school instructors.

Your Landes 1 Instructor Course will cover high performance skiing on-piste, off-piste, moguls, short turns, variables and race performance training from some of the highest respected trainers in Europe. This course will drastically increase your confidence and ability before entering the exam. We will analyse your performance using HD video feedback and prepare you for the theory part of your exam, assisting you every step of the way.

Wave goodbye to standing around talking over the basics! With your Landes 1 Qualification comes a higher salary, better clients and increased priority within the Ski School, meaning more skiing, teaching, and money!

I had the BEST time of my life becoming an instructor with SIA!! Didn’t know how to ski when I got there, had the strongest passion imaginable for skiing six weeks later!!

Keith, UK

Absolutely life changing! When I first arrived I was quite unsure of what to expect, coming from a small town in the UK and feeling really nervous. The course exceeded anything I could of ever dreamed of; meeting what are now my best friends and spending 3 months living the ski dream!

Boo Kent, UK

If I could go back and do it all again I would, without a doubt! Apart from the extreme goggle tan I went home with, there wasn’t any negatives. The instructors, people and area were amazing, even if you aren’t a great skier or haven’t skied at all go for it, that’s what I did and I now can proudly say I have my Landes one qualification.


Sam Gillard, UK

In my opinion SIA is your only choice to become a ski instructor. For me, it was difficult to chose between all the different schools but I have never regretted the decision to choose SIA. The course was very well planned, organised and worth every dollar I paid for it.
