The Mt Ruapehu Weekend Prep Courses are specifically designed to provide individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to teach skiing or snowboarding to an intermediate level. These courses are aimed at individuals wanting to train toward instructor certification in a professional, informative and fun environment. The course will ideally suit people who are currently employed Mon-Fri, 9-5 or who are tertiary students. You’ll also need to commit a week in late August and a week in October for the level 1 and 2 exams. See www.nzsia.org for exam dates. The courses are run at both Turoa and Whakapapa Ski Areas.
During the prep course participants will be instructed by our expert trainers using NZSIA technique and progressions, video analysis, rider improvement and shadow teaching opportunities. Participants enjoy queue privileges to maximise the training opportunities on busy weekend days. The Weekend Prep Courses fully utilises our vast and challenging terrain on the two largest ski areas in NZ.
We’ve done our best to keep these courses as simple as possible, however we know there are many questions you may have. We’ve compiled the most common and some answers here.
