A typical day would involve a 9.00am start approximately and on snow training will continue to around 3.30pm which includes a break for lunch. The classroom sessions will normally start at 5pm and will last up to two hours. Students may then need approximately one hour further preparation and self study. The plan for each day is shown overleaf.
It should be noted that this is a guide that may be worked to suit local conditions and resources. Classroom work will focus on the course workbook and performance analysis includes video debriefs. The on snow course runs from Monday to Friday with a two day mid-course break on Saturday and Sunday. The assessment criteria for the course will be explained by your trainer.
Further information on assessment is contained in the course workbook. At the end of the course you will be given guidance on actions to continue to improve your performance. In some cases students may not pass the course and further training may be recommended. Our aim is to assist you to gain the maximum from the training. Your trainer will act as your guide and mentor throughout the course. Elements of the course will be challenging and sometimes difficult. Nevertheless, please remember that you have a dedicated team supporting you and your success is our success.
