8 Week Ski Instructor Course

A more condensed version of our 10 week course.

If you have more time check out our
10 week ski course.
If you are really short of time have a look at our
5 week Intensive ski course or our
5 week Level 1 ski course.

SITCo's 8 week ski course is our original idea but on a shortened timeframe. There will still be time for a lot more than just training and exams. On the 8 week course you will have the opportunity to do all the things that are on the 10 week course, you may find though that you are thrown in at the deep end when you arrive. Once you are up to speed you will still have time to enjoy everything a winter in Queenstown has to offer.

On successful completion of the 8 week ski course you will train for the NZSIA Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications.

The program is designed to allow to come down and do everything that you could do for the long course but in a shorter timeframe. This does mean that things can be a little more intense at times, but you will still get to do everything, you will even get to go on a Heli ski day out!

What Can I Expect On My Ski Instructor Course?

You can expect to be involved in a ski training program that will be a lot of fun, a lot of hard work and you will have a lot of challenges to over come. But at the end of the 8 weeks you will be a much better skier than you can ever imagine, with the skills and the knowledge to go out and work as ski instructor, or to ski with family and friends with a solid understanding of what makes good skiing.

You will be training on snow 3 days a week sometimes more, and then we will expect you to be practicing what you have learnt at least another two days a week. On top of that there will be video analysis session in the evenings and every week there will be at least one evening theory session indoors.
