Snowboarding hard, fast and dynamically, learning how to move and teach at the next level, the Austrian Landes Snowboard Qualification is an intense and advanced level that will push you to your absolute limits.

After gaining your Anwärter Qualification, the Landes is the next level and is of greater interest to ski schools around the world. Those who reach the Austrian Landes are in an elite group of less than 20% of ski school instructors. Your Landes Instructor Course will cover high performance on-piste, off-piste, freestyle, short turns, carving and race training from some of the highest respected trainers in Europe and 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 Qualification comes a higher salary, better clients and increased priority within the Ski School, meaning more boarding, teaching and money!

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.

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!
