Professional Training 




Up to 70% Sponsorship towards training fees!

The BASS team are again running our hugely successful training program for aspiring BASI level 3's & 4's. With programs for 1, 6 or 10 weeks containing the elements required for BASI. The training is delivered by BASI Trainers and our "BASS Pro Trainers" who are all very experienced ISTD's



At BASS we believe in developing for the future and have worked very hard to create an affordable pathway beyond BASI level 2. Aspiring British instructors can now train in France with trainers who have the skill and experience to take them to the next level. Basing yourself in France with exceptional training and links to working in nearby resorts!


This winter we've adapted our programme so that you can get the best training possible, no matter what the situation. Whether you want to come out for a full season and work & train, plan for 10 weeks, a block of 6 weeks or even just book 1 week at a time! We've developed our course over the past 15 years to provide you with all the tools you need for your BASI Level 3 and Level 4 exams. At BASS we're committed to helping instructors, we fully believe that you reap what you sow and that's why we've developed our sponsorship programme. 

How does the sponsorship work?

It's really quite simple, we offer various levels of sponsorship. Someone training towards their Level 3 qualification could receive up to 60% off the course cost, while someone training towards their Level 4 could receive up to 70% off. It's a huge amount of money for BASS to invest in you as an instructor, but we believe you're worth it! We don't ask anything of you, we just hope that one day you consider becoming part of the BASS family. However, many have gone on, with our help, to achieve ski teaching positions in Switzerland, Japan, NZ and other parts of the world.

How do I get sponsored?

Just get in touch with us, we'll chat you through the BASS programmes and work out how we can help you to achieve your goals. BASS want to support and nurture talent - so get in touch for your chance to be sponsored to train!
