Test Technique is the entry-level slalom test for working as a ski instructor in France. British ski instructors can supplement their BASI level 2 or 3 qualifications with the Test Technique Slalom Test and apply for equivalence for French stagiere status to obtain work with any French ski school that has stagier employment status. Thus, if you have some previous race experience you could do our BASI level 1 & 2 course, your test technique and then work as a paid ski instructor in France.
Requirements to attend this training: You must be a subscribed member of BASI or another equivalent ski instructors association.
Previous race training experience: We offer training for ski instructors just beginning their slalom training all the way to those closing in on the test level. Please contact us to chat about your specific level, experience and requirements.
Training details: Training is Monday to Friday all day during glacier ski open hours in gates or alternative training will always be provided if the weather does not permit, we also include regular video analysis. As part of our commitment to BASI members we have subsidised the training fee for BASI members only and members of equivalent associations.
"During my time with Snoworks PRO last season my Trainers were Jenny Yates and Euan Gardiner. They delivered the highest quality and most productive training that worked wonders for my technical progression. A huge focus and benefit of the training was down to how personal they both kept the delivery. Both Jenny and Euan spent a long time getting to know ME, allowing them to successfully build my confidence drastically throughout my time with them and ensured I was psychologically ready for my future in and out of skiing. I highly recommend training with this team. As an ex-national team skier, they were able to bring out the best in my skiing. For anyone aiming at their teaching awards and/or French Equivalence, their approach to performance is excellent."
"As a BASI 2, I spent two weeks training with Jenny from the Snoworks Pro team on Test technique training. Having never skied around gates before Jenny's vast knowledge of racing and her enthusiasm for everyone to improve shone through and enabled me to fully enjoy my training to the fullest. By the end of the two weeks, my skiing around the gates was unrecognisable compared to where I began thanks to Jenny."
