Copper Mountain, September 29, 2010: Rookie Academy's new ski and snowboard instructor courses at Copper Mountain, Colorado, offer a chance to join the snow sports industry the right way and gain an industry qualification in just three weeks.

These new instructor courses are the shortest courses Rookie Academy has ever offered. Course participants will see what working in the snow sports industry is like and do a lot of riding in three weeks.

"This is the perfect way for skiers and boarders to see if their dream of being a snow sports instructor will work for them," says Academy founder and instructor trainer, Dean Hunter.

"They only need to take three weeks time out from their studies or job. They can get themselves a respected industry qualification. And they get a taste of what living in a mountain resort is all about."

During their three weeks in Colorado, course participants will enjoy personal attention from experienced instructor trainers.

These trainers will work closely with students in small groups to equip them with the skills to meet just about any challenge a mountain can offer. They will also work hard to help students gain level one Professional Ski Instructor of America (PSIA) and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI) qualifications.

"Our trainers know how to give people the skills they need to be a successful instructor," says Hunter. "People in the industry know a Rookie graduate will have a good combination of riding and teaching skills."

Don't delay if you are thinking about starting a snow sports career this winter. Early-bird prices, offering a US$450 saving, are available on three week ski and snowboard instructor courses until October 20th.

With an eighteen year history and hundreds of graduates working in resorts around the world the Rookie Academy is well known in the snow sports industry. Its owners regularly field enquiries from ski and ride school directors looking for instructors.
