Your Gap Year in Kitzbühel / in the Austrian Alps means:
This course is rather for better skiers and snowboarders (but we had beginners, too!) who want to acquire the most prestigious instructors' qualification. People come from all over the world to get the Austrian certificate, known for its rigour and high standards. At the Deutsch-Institut we prepare you thoroughly for the exam. During your German course you'll get expert tuition in German for five days per week before moving to Kaprun for the intensive ski instructor programme provided by the Ski Instructor Academy Austria. If you're looking for intensive, this is for you!
The exams are in German. You get targeted German tuition with a thorough preparation for the written part. A couple of times we got complete beginners at German passing the exam.
After you've passed the course, you can stay in Kitzbühel and work as a ski/snowboard instructor (or in another ski resort of your choice). If you have a European passport, you are guaranteed a job by the Ski Instructor Academy. Enjoy the next 3 to 4 months in the resort getting paid to do what you love, on the snow, in the sun, meeting people from all over the world, sharing your enthusiasm for skiing or snowboarding.
