The pros and cons of a Level 3 course
If you are reading this, then you have probably either recently ticked off your level 2 qualification, are still to secure a job for next winter or you are considering embarking on a training course to progress towards your BASI 3 ski qualification.
There are currently quite a few different options available to you when progressing from the level 2 to the level 3 qualification. One approach is to secure a teaching job and progress with training in your free time which has proved a highly successful avenue for many ski instructors.

Below we look at some of the pro’s and con’s associated with joining a seasonal training programme, to help you decide if this is the right option for you.
