Welcome to the SBINZ E-Learning Platform

This ever-expanding, members-only resource has been created to aid the continuing education and development of SBINZ instructors. It is an online library, designed to help instructors study for their next certification level, whilst aiding the progression of snowboard teaching and continuing to develop snowboarding knowledge.

Within this resource you will find three different courses for each of the main certification levels (Level One, Level Two and Level Three). Each of these courses are comprised of three or four individual lessons, covering topics such as teaching theory and rider analysis.

These courses are mandatory to complete before attending the relevant certification (e.g. you must complete the Level Two online course here before attending a Level Two Certification).

Included in this resource are digital versions of the SBINZ Instructor’s Manual and the SBINZ Demonstration / Riding Task Videos. There is also a forum for you to share your thoughts on teaching snowboarding and ask any questions you may have about the SBINZ Certifications.

Please note that as you work through any of the courses below, your progress is continuously saved, so you can return at any time by logging in to the NZSIA membership area and navigating to Snowboard E-Learning.

Any member can choose to develop their knowledge further than their current certification level, by working through the Level Two and Level Three online courses.

If you are a current Level One or Level Two instructor you can choose to take the online course for the level you are aiming for, however we strongly recommend taking the time to explore the previous online courses, regardless of your certification. Working through this e-learning system from the beginning will help refresh your knowledge and keep you up to date, as there are regular content changes within the SBINZ system.

Note for instructors coming from other systems: Working through ALL the e-learning courses is especially important for you. SBINZ allows instructors from other systems to easily move across to the New Zealand system, however you should take the time to understand it from the beginning. This e-learning resource is the simplest and quickest way to do this.
