£5000 for a 9 week course...???
Guessing that means you are UK based, and i have looked at the courses available, mostly done in Canada or NZ, don't forget you have flights on top of this, and equipment and spending money...
Personally, i would suggest you look for a real snow indoor slope like Hemel, or Milton Keynes in the south or similar in the north and at least do a few lessons there...
Maybe you are a quick learner, maybe you aren't i don't know you, but think you are stretching it without any experience at all, and for what, to instruct where...??? If you think you are going to earn a living in Europe doing this, then i think you are sadly misinformed or mistaken, your best opportunity is seasonal work, and France won't employ you so that is one country out before you even start, most of the guys on here, BA etc will tell you how hard it is to get work at a resort in the US let alone as an instructor...
That leaves you with indoor slopes in the UK, and i think you will find they are very well catered to by staff who have years experience, so you would fall short...
Go and learn, look long and hard before you waste your money, have a couple of holidays over the winter and enjoy snowboarding, and then look at it again...!!!
