2015 saw the Academy run it’s 5th summer gap year programme. This years group of ‘gappies’ were an absolute credit to both themselves and the Academy and achieved a superb result by achieving their IASI (Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors) level 1 and 2 qualifications and also their level 1 Freestyle coaching award.
Each one of the guys showed a huge amount of commitment and passion throughout their training from the Academy coaches. We are really proud of their achievements from over the past 9 weeks. They bonded together and became a superb team and each one of them can be extremely confident moving forward with their future’s in the snowsports industry.
The summer acts as the perfect time to become qualified as a ski instructor. It offers students the chance to become qualified well before the next winter begins and in plenty of time to apply for teaching positions at ski schools all over the world.
