Are you born to board and have you been dreaming about a job as a snowboard instructor in the snow? Do the 10-day snowboard instructor course with Snowsports! After you pass the Austrian Anwärter course you can start working at the coolest ski schools in Austria and many other countries. All of our courses are in cooperation with the Austrian 'Staatliche Ausbilders.' These snowboard instructors have the highest attainable certificates in the world and they will teach you all the skills and knowhow!
Worried about the language? Don’t be. We offer a German language course specifically designed for the Anwärter program insuring your maximum chance of success.
The snowboard instructor course is both fun and educational! Your days will be spent snowboard training on the piste. Learning about techniques while improving your own ability and learning how to explain, demonstrate and give constructive feedback as an instructor. On your return from the mountain you will reinforce what you have learned with theory lessons covering all aspects from organization and safety to movement analysis. Your evenings are typically spent revising the days program and of course you have the opportunity to ask our coaches any questions you may have.
The Austrian ski and snowboard qualifications are globally recognised. Following successful completion of the course you will officially be an Anwärter snowboard instructor. This is the first level of qualification in the Austrian system. With this qualification you can work at almost every ski school in the world as a snowboard instructor. Once you have attained the Anwärter certificate, should you wish to progress through the Austrian system you can begin your Landes qualification which will enable you to teach more advanced skiers.
Teaching others how to snowboard is awesome! You can pass on your enthusiasm to others and work in a incredible environment with fabulous people. After usually four hours of instructing you will have plenty of time to hit the slopes. It really is a dream job! After you acquire your Anwärter certificate with Snowsports Instructor, we will assist you with a job placement as a snowboard instructor at the best snowboard schools in Austria.
A word of advice would be to get in touch with snowboard schools yourself to increase your chances for employment!
'Had 10 awesome days. Very informative, tough, but such a great vibe. Met so many great people and our entire group passed!!!! Niek's coaching was superb! He helped us with our theory a couple nights! The 'Ausbilders' helped us a great deal aswell. Strict, but 'immer' with a smile. Snowsports, thank you for this amazing experience! Let the season begin!'

'Snowsports Instructor is a young, spontaneous and a passionate organisation that guides you perfectly during the course.
The coaches that travel along to the course take care of the preparation training at the location, 2 days before the official start of the course. During this training you practice every aspect of the exams. It is definitely advisable to do the extra training preventing any surprises at the start of the course!'
