The IVSI

 

The International Association of Amateur Ski Instructors. The IVSI's original nomenclature reflected it's
role as a body primarily consisting of national sporting governing bodies who in turn qualified coaches
who dealt with athletes. Its former nomenclature follows a pattern which is consistent with many other
sports. In 1983 the IVSI recognized that the role fulfilled by its coaches was that of working for governing
bodies and clubs - many of whom had amateur athletes. The coaches were however often very much professional; both in the sense of their competence and their being paid - hence the change in name to the IVSI.

Whilst not all IVSI Coaches work full time in the sense of a career and some coaches may well work as volunteers in the main these coaches are very much professional and are paid as such. This trend continues with comments from most nations to the effect that the distinction between IVSI and ISIA instructors now relates more to part time vs full time. Range of Operation.
Holders of the IVSI international licence are authorised to operate within their own club or organisation, working with your own group subject to specific national legislation. Both the holder and their skiers must be members of the same group or organisation.
