Take a Gap Year Snowboard Instructor Course

Are you thinking about taking a Gap Year, or maybe you're just taking a gap from your career. Use your "gap time" wisely by signing up for a fantastic fun experience, that will also give you world recognised snowboard instructor qualifications!

SITCo runs snowboard courses and snowboard training programs to allow you to achieve your NZSIA/SBINZ snowboard instructor qualifications.

With the NZ winter season running June-Oct, you have the opportunity to come to Queenstown enjoy a winter season, train for your ski instructor qualifications, then head off to the northern hemisphere to work as a snowboard instructor with your qualification already in your pocket!

What would be the best Snowboard Instructor Course for me?

Have a look at what would be the best snowboard instructor training course for you?

We have 10 week snowboard course, 8 week snowboard course, 5 week Intensive Snowboard Course, 5 week L1 Snowboard Course.

What are my options once I am a qualified snowboard instructor?

After your SITCo course you will have the world as your mountain to go and work and play.

One very big advantage of the New Zealand snow season runs June - October, because we are in the southern hemisphere. This makes NZ the perfect "off season" training ground. Once the NZ season is finished then the northern hemisphere winter season is just getting ready to start.

There are many, many different opportunities after your SITCo course.

Working as a snowboard instructor is a possibility in - Europe - Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Andorra, Spain, Germany, UK to name just the big names.

Please note that France is a little bit different and no matter what qualifications you have you will need to consider further qualifications before you can work as a ski instructor in France.

North America - USA, Canada

Asia - Japan, Korea, China

Southern Hemisphere - Chile, Argentina, Australia and of course New Zealand

Just remember when you are planning on where you would like to go there is also the issue of work visas and depending on what passport(s) you hold, what age you are etc this might sway you to work in a particular area.
