NZSIA Ski
Instructor
Courses

The NZSIA has 4 levels of ski instructor certification, at the Rookie Academy, we offer ski instructor training courses to help you achieve your Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 certifications.

Level 1 and 2 certifications are achievable in one season and are included in our 8 and 11-week courses, Level 3 is a big step up from Level 2 so normally takes a couple of seasons skiing and teaching before attempting this qualification.

NZSIA Level 1

A Level One Ski Instructor is certified to teach first-time skiers up to advanced wedge turns. The five-day course is primarily an educational course with assessments in skiing and teaching.

NZSIA Level 2

The Ski Level Two Certification qualifies you to teach students from wedge-parallel turns to advanced parallel turns.

NZSIA Level 3

The Ski Level Three Certification qualifies you to teach students in all-mountain situations and meets the ISIA Stamp skiing and teaching requirements.
