New Year, New Start - A Ski Instructor Course?
We’ve heard it time and time again. Year after year we utter the same old, bland, and easily broken New Year resolutions to ourselves in some vain hope that this year we’ll step on to our journey of self betterment. Give up chocolate, take up yoga, drink less. We make these resolutions with guilty hearts and tight belts as we attempt to punish ourselves for our Christmas overindulgences, knowing full well that by the time it comes around to that second week in January we’ll be back to our old ways.
So why not, this year, instead of making empty promises that you don’t have a hope in high water of sticking to, choose something that you’ll be counting down the day until you can start? Instead of vowing to lay off the sugary snacks, use the New Year as a chance to try something completely new?
If you’re into winter sports, then a ski instructor course might just be the perfect thing for you. Even better if you’ve recently finished education, and are unsure what it is you want to go on to do. Taking a ski instructor course as a part of a gap year can be a great way to weigh up your options. You might decide to go back to education after you’ve gained your worldwide-acknowledged qualification, or you might decide that being a ski instructor is the path for you.
Whatever you decide to do with the training you receive, you can be assured that it’s of the absolute best quality available. Skivo2, a company based in Le Praz, Courchevel, offer BASI examiners and BASI ISTD Level 4 trainers in order to ensure that your training is of an excellent standard.
Upon completion of the course, you will be the proud owner of BASI Level 1 and 2, allowing you to teach as a ski instructor almost anywhere in the world. Hundreds of opportunities will suddenly be available to you, after a mere 10 weeks on the slopes in France.
So if you’re looking to do something a little bit more adventurous, and ultimately much more rewarding as a part of your New Year’s plans, then consider a ski instructor course as part of a career break of gap year. Not only will it give you a great qualification, and allow you to stay in the beautiful French Alps for 10 weeks, but you won’t have to give up the sweet stuff either!
