GRADUATE SKI INSTRUCTORS’ TRAINING
The graduate ski instructors’ training (State Ski Instructor) is regulated by law. The implementation of the training courses for the graduate instructors’ examination is assigned to the county (land) ski instructor associations. The county ski instructors associations and provincial governments have agreed with the federal government that the state ski instructor training is carried out at the Federal Institutes of Physical Education (Federal Sports Academy). The BMUKK has delegated this training to the graduate ski instructors at the Federal Sports Academy Innsbruck.
The instruction is divided into two semesters (theory and practical). An integral part of the training is the "Eurotest" and an extensive alpine training ("Euro Security").
Polyvalent vocational training is an essential factor in the graduate ski instructors’ training in Austria. Participants not only receive an excellent education in alpine skiing and an extensive alpine training, but also a high-quality education in snowboarding, Nordic skiing and in the alternative snow sports (trend sports). In addition, the graduates of the diploma ski instructors’ course have the opportunity to complete the Ski Guide training.
