Any serious training should provide the teaching skills and give the trainees the opportunity to stabilize them in their own teaching and to automate. Only then it is learned. Therefore, the duration of training includes the ideal case for almost a year.
Currently these requirements will be met only by specialization offered by the Snowsports Südtirol.
