BASS Pro 2

Our successful Pro 2 programme has been created as the ideal introduction to the BASI ski instructor qualification pathway.

The Pro 2 is designed to give you the knowledge, skill and precision required to develop from recreational skier to ski instructor and to support continued professional development for BASI level 1 members.

The programme consists of 145 hours with your own team coaches, plus 70 hours of ski school experience with the BASS teaching team. In addition, you will need to be available for structured practice sessions with your team which, are designed to help you consolidate learning between coaching sessions.

The Pro 2 programme is modular and can include the BASI Level 1 and 2 courses as separate modules.

We can tailor a course to your needs and many team members have joined us simply to improve their own skiing without taking BASI courses or have opted to take the BASI level 1 course later in the season.

Good to Know

You must be aged 18 yrs or older to join the BASS Pro team. We appreciate that our students are independent adults so we don’t provide travel, accommodation or pastoral care. This gives you the freedom to make a plan that suits your budget and family needs.

Not sure you’re ready to become a pro? Check here to see the basi level 1 course pre-requisites and more about the qualification pathway.

For those of you aged 26 and under, the full area season pass costs just €391 this winter. See the PDS website for details of all ski pass offers and deadlines.

The Pro 2 Programme is limited to just 8 places so drop us a line if you’d like to know more about becoming a ski instructor.

We look forward to welcoming you to the team.
