If you love to ski and want to turn your passion into a profession then this is the program for you! Certification by the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance and is recognized by the BC Ministry of Education, which awards External Sports Credits for CSIA Level 1. The objective of the Instructor Practicum is to offer local students an opportunity to learn about the ski industry, gain an internationally recognized, professional certification, earn credit for High School graduation and build valuable work and volunteer experience.
To date Mt Seymour has had 28 students participate in this program. 23 completed their CSIA Level 1 certification and all gained many hours of teaching experience, training and an understanding of the ski industry. A number of these students have gone on to join the instructor team.
In 2014-2015 Mt Seymour will accept up to 16 Students. Students must commit to 100 hours of volunteer instructing and there is a cost of $50 for the CSIA manual and course materials. Students receive a Mt Seymour staff season pass, preparatory training for the CSIA 1 course, the CSIA Level 1 course and 100 hours of work experience in a ski school. Standard cost for the CSIA Level 1 course is $399 but Mt Seymour covers everything but the course materials.
