Ski/Board Technician Foundation Course

Price: £185.00 (including 20 % tax)

Whilst Jon's†DIY Tuning Lesson is†perfect†for learning†the basics of performance hand†tuning for pro skiers, instructors, racers & recreational skiers alike,†it would only†be of limited benefit for someone looking for employment within a ski/snowboard workshop,†either abroad or in the UK.†

Employment opportunities can be hard to find for those with little or no experience so the†Ski/Board Technician†Foundation Course is specifically designed to give the attendee a†working†knowledge of the basic day to day†workshop elements making it†the†ideal starting place for†those†preparing for employment as a Ski/Snowboard Technician.

The areas covered are:
  • Workshop Health & Safety
  • Ski/board construction &†edge geometry
  • Base grinding (using RoffB machine)
  • Hand edge tuning
  • Machine edge tuning (using RoffB machine)
  • Base repairs
  • Base waxing & polishing
  • Bindings installation
  • Binding adjustment
  • Binding maintenance & torque testing (using†Wintersteiger torque machine)

Unlike courses offered elsewhere were you will be part of a large group, this course offers one-to-one tuition thus ensuring a full day of 'hands on' time over a wider range of work processes. A second person may attend at your invitation only & if they do then†each person will have†their own bench/tools to use.

A certificate will be issued upon†successful completion &†a†record of attendance†will be held to enable a reference to be given if requested by†a future potential employer.
Work skis/bindings will be provided by Jon but you are welcome to bring†your own skis or board to be serviced during the course†at no additional cost.

The courses†are from 9.30am to 5pm with a break for lunch†& are available 7 days a week†throughout the year although due to workshop workload it's unlikely that Saturday appointments will be available during the season.†

Tea & coffee†will be provided thoughout the day but please bring a pack lunch with you. There are toilet facilities†on site & car parking directly outside.

The cost is £185 per person & payment can be made by Paypal via this online store or simply call Jon with your debit/credit card details.†

Dates†tend to be booked up a few weeks in advance so†it's recommended to reserve†a day as early as possible.

The Ski†Technicians Foundation Course†has also proved to be a very popular†present†for which Jon†can issue a personalised gift voucher.

To book simply call or email Jon.

A†full refund will be given†for†cancellations received prior to five working days before the course date. A £100 refund will be given†for cancellations within five working days of the course date.†
