Diamonds Training Centre

Diamonds Training Centre is a sport coaching company, specialized in ski instructor training and education. Differently from our ski courses providers, we run everything directly, so when you get in touch with us, you talk directly to the coaches that you will have running the courses.



We are based in Zermatt, Switzerland, where we organize ski instructor training from level 1 to level 4, nearly all year round (yes, we can ski in the summer!).



The courses we run are limited in numbers of participants, as we want to give everyone the best experience and our full attention. Looking after each member we make sure we can create a team feeling in which all participants can enjoy themself, learn all we can pass on and ski the most out every day on the mountain!

Diamonds Training Centre was created with one ambition: provide our athletes with the opportunity to follow their passion. Unfiltered from any other service providers or intermediaries.

We are a team of professional coaches dedicated to their field, whose mission is to provide the highest standards of coaching. For this reason we don't run lots of courses in huge numbers of participants. What we deliver is the best that can be delivered. And that is it.

Following this philosophy we have created two Ski Gap programmes, which include all the aspects we believe are needed in order to give the best experience possible. And a great chance to work afterwards!

The Autumn Course runs for 8 weeks from the start of October, with the aim of qualifying candidates before the start of the winter season, right in time to apply for a ski instructor job, through our network of partner ski schools!

This course runs on the Matterhorn Glacier, on the highest slopes of Europe. Snow is guaranteed, as a matter of fact, we ski all year round!

The Winter Course runs for 11 weeks, starting in December. We tailored this course to finish at the end of January, so participants can qualify in time to get a ski instructor job for the busiest weeks of the season: February Half Term.

All our courses are all included, so all you need to do is book a flight and come join us in Zermatt.

The fee includes:

  • Cosy accommodation for the full duration of the course (with the option, for the winter course, to extend until the end of the season).
  • Breakfast and dinner served at the chalet 5 days a week
  • Ski Pass for the full duration of the course
  • Course Coordinator always available for all participants
  • Day trip to another resort (Autumn course only)
  • Help with your CV and job application


The Training includes:

  • Professional Ski Coaches (ski instructors examiners and national representatives at international congresses)
  • Small training team
  • On-snow Technical Training
  • On-snow Teachning Training
  • Video Analysis of your skiing technique and teaching methods
  • Freestyle and mountain safety clinics
  • First aid course and qualification
  • Lectures on sport coaching and customer care
  • Fitness training
  •  Ski instructor shadowing

All courses also include the IASI Level 1 and Level 2 Ski Instructor exams. These qualifications are recognized in the vast majority of countries in Europe and across the World. Our previous trainees have been able to get a job in different schools, from the UK all the way to Japan!

For those interested in getting extra time and experience we can organize extra Sport Internship, with shadowing hours with our coaches.

Through out the winter we run professional courses for instructors going for the highest levels (3 and 4). Those interested in a full internship can mention it during the booking process. Sport Interships can also be requested once in resort, though places are very limited. 

All interships are tailored around the candidate's needs and interest, so fees and time committiments needs to be agreed and confirmed once both parties have gone through the first discussion.
