Snowboard Instructor

For many of you who want to become an instructor, teaching snowboarding is all about fun. Well, working can be fun if you are passionate about what you do. However bear in mind that as a snowboard instructor you are paid for delivering a high quality lesson. No matter wich level you are or how much you earn. Snowboard instructors are responsible for their customers experience and safety.

snowboard-instructorThe flexibility is highly desirable in this profession as each customer has different expectations. Clear comunication, honesty and being open up to people are gold. If you have these values, you don’t need to be Travis Rice or Jeremy Jones to be a brilliant snowboard instructor. You even don’t need an ISIA Card or any of the highest qualifications. Unless you want to teach in France and earn loads of money;-). The courses, trainings, licenses and badges are important, but the first thing that really counts is how good you can deliver a lesson.
