SKI & SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR COURSES IN HAKUBA


Instructor Training Courses & Certification in Japan

What better place to get your instructor certifications than with the people who run one of Japan’s largest ski schools! The Evergreen International Ski School has been operating in the Hakuba Valley for more than a decade, and has developed a reputation of excellence for our quality adults, children’s and private programs.

We know exactly what it takes to train instructors, we do it every day! Not only can we help you develop your riding to the standard, we can also give you the chance to get practical teaching experience in our ski school. You’ll have to trust us on this one, but when it comes to getting your first job in the industry, having solid teaching experience is what your future employer is looking out for.

As well as offering internationally accredited qualifications through CASI (Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors) and APSI (Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors) we also run 2-12 week programs including skills training, certification, work experience and more.

CASI SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION

LEVEL 1 , 2 & 3 SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR COURSES IN HAKUBA


CASI stands for the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors. Internationally recognised, a Level 1 instructor certificate from CASI is a great first step to beginning a snowsports career, and the Level 2 is a significant next step.

Facilitated by internationally recognised CASI Instructor Trainers, we have certified hundreds if not thousands of instructors here in Hakuba – you could be next!

As a qualitative alpine education provider, we provide examinations, but we also provide the training so you can get that certification. We genuinely want all our students to succeed and passing the Level 1 is not guaranteed, especially if you have never received any formal training for your teaching or riding skills! We STRONGLY encourage you to prepare yourself with the appropriate training before the exam.

There are instances when you may not need to take the preparation training – if you feel confident but are unsure of where you are at, then email us and we will give you our honest and professional advice as to your chances of passing.
