11 Week – Professional Snowboard Instructor

Snowboard Instructor Shreducation Programs

The YES Professional Snowboard Instructor Course is the ultimate program for anyone looking to get the most out of their time in Whistler. We have spent the last few years listening to our graduates’ feedback and we have built the next generation of instructor training courses!

Program Overview

This ultimate Instructor course is designed for those looking for a professional edge. We will take you through all the necessary training for you to gain your CASI Level 1 & 2 certifications. The Canadian Association for Snowboard Instructors (CASI) Level 2 certifies you to teach snowboarders up to the advanced sliding turn and intermediate carving level.

The program includes technical seminars, on-going assessment of your riding progress, weekly fun videos (see yourself on the big screen!) and a personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros. You will also participate in our Snow Park training clinic which will cover the progression to riding switch, rails, jumps and even half pipe. If you’re up for the challenge, you may choose to add the CASI Park instructor 1 exam to your list of achievements.

You will also participate in the AST 1 & AST Advanced avalanche awareness courses. This is a course for those wishing to acquire appropriate entry level safety skills, proper instruction in uphill skinning techniques, assessing mountain environments and of course, the fun of powder snow boarding.

Overall, the professional 11 week program will improve your interpersonal skills, make you a better communicator and increase your technical knowledge as you advance your own riding to new heights!
