The Eurotest is an integral part of your BASI Level 4 ISTD ski instructor qualification. Once passed, the test will allow you to continue training to become a ski instructor in regulated countries requiring the Euro Test.

The test follows strict international rules and is validated by the country in which you take your test.

Sounds daunting? It shouldn’t!

Set up by our very own Eurotest openers James Bennett and Craig Robinson in 2009, PDS (formally JJC) have carefully designed a programme to guide you through your Eurotest. It has been built around their experiences and expert knowledge.

Their sole mission is to “best equip you with the skills you need to succeed”.

The program continues to go from strength to strength, demonstrated by a consistently high pass rates year in year out.

Our coaches are second to none, the team consists of Eurotest openers, World Cup and Olympic athletes! They have a history competing and coaching at the highest level – underneath the cool, calm exteriors they have the competitive drive that will push you to be successful.

They invest time and effort ensuring your programme is as individual as you are. Need additional dryland training? They will cover it. Need help with your fitness? They will add cardio to your programme.


PDS think of everything to prepare you for the Eurotest and that includes location. They ensure you train on a variety of terrain and lane space to set what you need – when you need it. Your training wont be limited to one glacier as the team will seek out the best conditions at the time.

They tailor the programme for your every demand.

PDS offer you a variety of levels from starter programs all the way through to test ready. You have the opportunity to train with like-minded individuals at a level that suits you. Our teams sizes are up to 12 candidates with two coaches.

With a coaching team full of Eurotest openers, PDS also offer realistic mock tests based, on up to date calibrations.
