Welcome to the ISIA Database
It has always been the goal of the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA) to support the community of over 35,000 professional snow sport instructors around the world in their activities. The ISIA database is the perfect basis for this. In order to be informed about the worldwide professional snow sport instructor qualifications, it will be sufficient in the future to have a look at the ISIA Database. We wish you much success.
The ISIA Database offers organizations, institutions, companies and other interested parties the possibility to check whether the person is part of the group of highest qualified professional snow sport instructors related to the ISIA Quality Standard for the education of snow sport professionals. The ISIA Quality Standard is the worldwide recognized guideline for the classification of professional qualifications in snow sport teaching.
The national ISIA member associations are exclusively responsible for the inscription of the individual snow sports instructors in the ISIA Database. Only those who have successfully completed a corresponding, national training as a professional ski, snowboard or cross-country instructor can be listed in the ISIA Database. Snow sport instructors can present themselves on this platform, not only with their name, their qualification, their background, but also with some additional information and their personal contact details.
All member associations in the ISIA, which are responsible for the professional education to become a snow sport instructor in the respective nations, are also visible for everyone with their detailed information about the national education to become a professional snow sport instructor. The member associations are already very familiar with the ISIA Database and are already working intensively with it.
To edit your personal data in the ISIA Database, you have to register in the Database first. For this you have to send an e-mail to your national ski instructors' association, which is a member of the ISIA, asking for an invitation to register in the new ISIA Database. Afterwards you will receive an e-mail from your association with the request to register. If you follow the link in this mail, you can register with your e-mail address and enter a password of your choice. This invitation is active for 7 days, so please complete the registration immediately after receiving the invitation, it takes just under a minute and you can add your personal data and a passport photo. The registered qualifications as well as the membership to an association can only be changed by the association itself. Please remember that each e-mail address may only exist once in the database. This applies especially to those who live in the same household, are all qualified snow sports instructors and use the same e-mail address.
Based on data protection regulations in Europe and many other countries, snow sport instructors must decide for themselves whether to make their personal data public at all. "Public" means that the personal data is visible to everyone, "non-public" means that this datas will not be visible. After importing all snow sport instructors who have the quality status "ISIA Stamp" or "ISIA Card" due to their qualification, all snow sport instructors are not shown to the public with their personal data. The user of the ISIA Database gets only the information that this snow sports instructor exists and which ISIA code can be assigned to this instructor. The registered snow sports instructor can decide directly in the ISIA Database whether the personal data should be shown " public" or "not public". The decision about this is made by the snow sport instructor on his own responsibility. Also the decision once made about "public" or "non-public" can be changed again at any time.
In this case please contact the national association of professional snow sport instructors. The professional ski instructors associations in Austria, France and in parts of Italy have closed their membership in the ISIA. This is the reason why the professional snow sport instructors from these nations are not listed in the ISIA Database.
If you have not completed your training as a snow sport instructor in the professional association for snow sport instructors responsible for your country, you cannot be listed in the ISIA Database. Each country or ISIA member association decides on its own responsibility and competence about the questions of a recognition or equalization of your qualification.
