[疑問]新手想考教練牌/ Some questions about a rookie to be a ski instructor
 
Hi everyone! I'm Andrew
I'm living in Macao and I have only skied 4 separate times
I can do green runs but keep falling down in red runs

I wanna take the ski instructor Level 1+2 courses & exams
the ideal time and place for me would be early July in New Zealand (NZSKI courses).
and I have found couple courses offered by different ski schools already.
But the problem is I need to practice a little more before the course starts
I can reserve a month time for practising from now before July.
During this practice month, I want someone to guide me to improve faster.
Who should I ask to give me guidance? Ski schools? personal tutors?
I don't even have friends who love skiing.
Or can I just practice by myself for this month?

Can people who have ski instructor qualifications give me some advice on my plan?

Please feel free to respond with Chinese or English.
I use English cox I see a lot of posts with English. Thank you so much!!!

thx for such detailed explanation of the qualifications!
Mike do you often see people take Level 2 exams right after Level 1?

Definitely cannot at this present stage
what do you think if I practice 6 hours a day
6 days a week for 4 weeks (total 24 days)??
probably will be working very hard each day

You have to check with NZSIA (http://www.nzsia.org/) see whether they have any additional requirement (eg. working experience) between Level 1 and 2.

Just as a matter of interest, why do you want ski instructor qualification?

The website says having the level 1 certificate is the only requirement of taking level 2 exam
Cox I think earning money with my interest is brilliant
Moreover I can enjoy the very good environment during training and practice
Having level 2 certificates could be beneficial for working abroad

The NZSIA website said it is possible to sit Level One and Level Two in the same season.
Typically, Level Ones are held in mid-season and Level Twos are scheduled for late-season.

I have a friend who took the Lv1+Lv2 NZSIA training + exam program last year in New Zealand just as what you are planning to do.
He was a holiday skier for some years before taking the program. He passed the Lv1 exam quite comfortably. At Lv2 it was a total different story. Lv2's requirement is much higher.

He has a FB blog and wrote quite many articles during his training in NZ that's how I knew his experience. I myself is a snowboarder and hold CASI instructor licences. Also I had took trainings for SBINZ Lv2 exam. My experience is the same as my friend: Lv2 is much more difficult than Lv1.

Nevertheless, it is good that you have a clear goal. Go for it!

Thank you!
So are you teaching people to SB now?
btw Can you send his FB blog to my inbox?
really need some advice from people who know about the exam content of NZSKI level 2

Can I have the blog too? Please

Is it common to take level 1 and level 2 at late 40?

I personally would think you should be able to manage parallel turn or most Red comfortably and confidently before proceed to instructor level.

I don't think so even I have not taken any of them
but you can see the brochures of many ski schools
the largest portion is 18-25
But personally, I think the age means nothing so do care about it

Yes I agree with you!
And that is one of my targets in the 1 month skiing trip in March

That's Edwin how trained at Cardrona for Lv1+2. He managed to pass Lv1 easily (as expected). For Lv2, he passed teaching but failed skiing on his first exam.

Andrew, giving your limited skiing experience at the moment, I would suggest taking lesson from an instructor in order to prepare for the course. That's the quickest way to improve without learning bad habits. Once the course started, the schedule is pretty tight and you may have a harder time to catch up.

I know nothing is impossible, but unless you're a good athlete person with sport sense, I don't think it will be easy for you to get Lv2 in one season. Skiing do needs mileage to build up the skills.

louiskkchan, it isn't uncommon to see mid age people taking CSIA exam. If you enjoy the sport and vision yourself to become an instructor one day, take the exam. However, I should say a full time ski instructor's life is very different from what an outside thinks.

agree with B2L2.

If you just want to improve the skills, no need to go for the training and exam for instructor. Lessons, camps, would be more cheap, more effective, more fun.

If you want to get a job, offcause you need a certification. Suggest to check about the salary of a ski/sb instructor, for example L2, and what they need to do every working day. Teach the beginners, ride down only few slopes all the season, boring ? or not ?

Some one get a L1 only, and enjoy the benefit that get free staff training by instructor(L3/Director) , as PSIA. You have to locate at a ski resort, or near by, don't need an international flight.

Someone said he has spend 100K Canada dollars for CSIA L1/L2 certification, and L3 training, in 3 years.
