About NZSIA Adaptive
NZSIA Adaptive Division has a renowned qualification for instructors wishing to work in this rewarding sector of the industry. The qualifications are designed to adapt teaching, techniques and equipment for people with a wide range of physical, intellectual or sensory disabilities to learn to ski or snowboard.
NZSIA Adaptive offers New Zealand based adaptive qualifications at Level One, for those that hold a Level One Ski/Snowboard Level One Certification, and at Level Two, for those that hold a Ski/Snowboard Level Two Certification and have adaptive experience.
The courses cover the recommended teaching progressions up to the appropriate level for: mono-ski, bi-ski, 4-track, 3-track, snowboard, visual impairments and intellectual impairments; lifting, loading and handling, etiquette, attitude and disability awareness.
