Ski Courses: The Latest Free Online Training Courses

Author : Sam Paul

There is more to life than sitting behind a desk, banging a computer keyboard so you can put money in someone else’s bank account. If you are bored in your work; if you feel that life is passing you by, and that you might one day wake up and discover that you are 50 and you never did any of those things you always said you might do – you’re probably in the wrong job. Take a look around and you will realise that there is work out there for a person who wants a bit of travel, a bit of adventure, but still wants a living wage. It all starts with free online training courses – like the ski courses that have just appeared to swell the ranks of online travel training resources.

The idea behind these courses is simple and extremely effective. The travel industry is a fairly heavily contested one to get into, mainly because a lot of travel companies give their employees plenty of chances to sample the products they are selling – i.e. to travel in the name of research. As such, two things tend to happen: one, all interviews are oversubscribed, with travel companies deluged by CVs from young hopefuls; and two, people who are only interested in the perks and not the work sometimes slip through the net and prove to be a waste of time and training money for all concerned. Free online training courses sidestep all this by delivering a lot of the basic information about an industry, or a particular company, before the prospective employee has even gone for interview. By doing online ski courses, you can work out if you really want to work for a ski holiday organisation – which means, if you don’t, that you won’t go for interview.

The benefits to you are clear. You get to sample the industry without putting too much time and effort into actually working in it – which means you know whether you really want to proceed or not. You don’t have to pay because the courses are effectively sponsored by the companies whose names are attached to them. And if you do decide, having done these free online training courses, that the ski industry is the one for you – then you get to go into interviews with all that knowledge from the ski courses. You get an edge over anyone else at interview who has not done the free courses – you get the job, and your new career kicks into gear.

From an employer’s point of view the free courses available online are pretty neat too. Anyone who comes to interview having done one is clearly a person who both knows that they want to work for you and who has been able to prove a good deal of initiative and application before they’ve even started. Free online training courses, like the new ski courses offered by Online Travel Training, allow employers to make a much better informed decision about who would be the most worthwhile person to take on and train. Everyone wins, no one loses – and you get to do a job you actually like.
