Who is this exam best suited to?
Anyone looking to get the best training and start instructing in a short period of time.
How good do you need to be a snowboarding before the course?
BASI recommends that you should be able to snowboard confidently coping with a variety of conditions on red runs, making rhythmical turns close to the fall line at a steady pace.
Is the exam hard to pass?
No, the course is not hard to pass. There are two components which you will be evaluated on; your snowboarding (demonstration) ability and your ability to teach the fundamentals of snowboarding. The “lower end” snowboarding (j-turns, basic turns etc.) are deomostrated to you during the course and serves as a great foundation for you to improve your snowboarding skills.
How do I get my BASI Licence?
Basecamp provide you with the Level 1 exam. On top of this you will need to organise 35 hours of shadowing, a first aid course, a CRB check and complete the safeguarding childrens module on the BASI website. Once you have completed these requirements, you need to call BASI and upgrade to a full member.
Can I upgrade my to the Level 2 after booking?
Absolutely, it all depends on our availability. You should chat to the Basecamp team who will run through your options.
