Course Schedule

Days 1-3 – classes on the slope

Day 4 – an exam on teaching methods and demonstration of skiing techniques


Testing is taken according to two training modules:

  • Methodology
  • Demonstration of technical elements


The examination of professional skills and knowledge is carried out as a practical work (on a slope). A student conducts practical classes with a group.

The quality of conducting classes is assessed according to the following criteria:

  • ability of a participant to teach others to perform any technical element (trained within the course program);
  • choice of a slope;
  • organisation of a group;
  • compliance with the methodology;
  • ability to correct students’ mistakes;
  • demonstration of technical elements by a participant.

The assessment is carried out in the two-grade system: Passed and Fail.

Demonstration of Technique

The demonstration of the ski technique includes performing four technical elements:

  • a turn in the plow;
  • side sliding;
  • carving turn of the basic level;
  • a basic turn of the long radius while parallel skiing.

During the performance of technical elements, the following is estimated:

  • balanced stance during the demonstration of an element;
  • smooth sliding with speed control;
  • smooth unweighting and weighting of skis;
  • rhythm and timing in all phases of a turn.

The assessment is carried out in a five-point system:

  • “5” – (“excellent”) – Passed;
  • “4” – (“good”) – Passed;
  • “3” – (“satisfactory”) – Passed;
  • “2” – (“not satisfactory”) – Fail;
  • “1” – (“bad”) – Fail.

Successful completion of three out of the four elements is a positive result of mastering the technique.

After the successful completion of a course, you will receive:

  • proficiency of Ski Instructor of the C qualification;
  • certificate of instructor – the conferment of the certificate of the instructor of the C qualification;
  • recommendations for further extension courses;
  • necessary skills and knowledge for professional work as an instructor with beginners;
  • recommendations for employment at Bukovel Ski School.
