    Posted: 22 April 2014 at 15:52
Hi,

Im looking at doing my first season within the next year, i have looked at multiple options of jobs, bar work, chalet work etc but have come across courses offering training to become a snowboard instructor with a guaranteed job at the end of the course for the whole of the season. 

http://www.alltracksacademy.com/courses/internships/snowboard-instructor-internship/

I know it appears a little pricey for a course so im just wondering if anyone has been on this course or something similar and whether it is worth the money, could i plan and do this myself and get a job instructing without forking out thousands of pounds?

Any advice is appreciated !

Hey Sledger

Yeah these courses can seem pricey, but I guess you are paying for the fact they sort it all for you. I did the EA Snowboarding one in Mt Norquay in Canada and it was epic. I did pay a bit upfront, but it meant I got there and had training and stuff, then a guaranteed job offer from the ski school there. This was pretty sweet actually as there were lots of people who just went there on their own and ended up having to wait tables and stuff cos they couldn't get an instructor job. So in my case it was 100% worth it. Big smile

That does seem pretty pricey. Can they really guarantee you a job though? Sounds a bit far fetched to me. But if they can really guarantee you a long term job then the training and work at the end of it would make this worth the price imo. Plus you'll have a good time. I think i may do some more research on this. Are there other companies like this?

Hi Adley, 

I have searched our system and can not find any message which includes Adley in the message or sender address.

Could you please give me some more info so I can investigate or maybe send it again so we can respond immediately.

All the best, 
Gary
