Its important to get an understanding of what exactly you are getting out of your instructor course from a qualification point of view. What qualifications are there, how can they benefit you and most importantly where could you choose to take them for employment.

Holding a Level 1 qualification enables you to be eligible to work in Canada, America, Andorra or UK snow domes. Those that partied hard through the season yet stayed focused and determined to bag their Level 2 qualification means that not only can you work in Canada, but in New Zealand, Australia, USA and Japan. Holding the Park Instructor qualification for snowboarding or the Snow Park qualification is a great addition to your Level 1 or 2, allowing you teach to freestyle lessons.
