Ski Instructor Course and Snowboard Instructor Course Canada

4-Week Instructor Clinic

November 15 - December 15, 2017 | January 2018 | April 2018

Overview - Ski Instructor Course / Snowboard Instructor Course

The 4-Week Instructor Clinic is designed for someone looking for a fun and productive ski/snowboard training experience in a relatively brief amount of time. This program focuses on improving our students’ skills with the intent of successfully completing their Level 1 CSIA/CASI certification. Students will have the opportunity to leverage their training and experience with Timberline into instructing positions both within Canada and around the globe for future seasons.

Timberline Academy is locally owned and operated so our students can expect a positive, team-based atmosphere with a high level of on the ground support from the ownership team. We make the extra effort to engage our students in the community through weekly group activities, like Hockey, family dinners and by participating in local volunteering initiatives.
