IASI Course Provider

The Ski Club of Ireland is now an IASI Course Provider

If you ski or board with confidence down a red run, and can safely tackle most black runs, you have the necessary skills. If you enjoy interacting with people and helping others, you have what it takes to be a teacher.

IASI work with External Course Providers (Ski Club of Ireland) who are now licensed to run specific courses such as:

  • Alpine and Snowboard Level 1 and Level 2 (teach) Instructor.
  • Freestyle and Race Coach Level 1 and 2.
  • Journey to Level 1, 2 and 3 courses.

The training side of the course will be run over two Friday nights and two Sundays. The assessment will be held again over two Friday evenings and two Sundays. During the season, the Club will provide you with the required 20 hours shadowing and ski school experience. If you wish you can be assigned an experienced instructor or team leader as a mentor. This gives participants ample time to work on their skills over the winter. We encourage trainees to practice together in groups between training and assessment, this makes it fun and is a great way to build friendships.

For on-slope practice you will need a SCI season ticket, or pay per session - €40 per single session or €80 per day when participating in the training, assessment and shadowing.
