About NZSIA Membership

The NZSIA was established in 1971 to train, examine and certify snowsport instructors and coaches at an internationally recognised standard. As an Incorporated Society the NZSIA is a completely non-profit organisation.

All current NZ-qualified instructors must keep their membership up-to-date if they would like to keep their certifications valid. These membership subscriptions fund the day-to-day operating of the NZSIA and help keep our qualifications recognised internationally.

Additionally, any NZSIA or SBINZ courses cannot be attended without your membership being completely up-to-date.

Renewing membership

Membership is valid from 1st January to 31st December each year. Renewal of membership should be done at the start of the calendar year, especially if teaching overseas.

Membership renewal costs NZ$85 and can be done online by clicking here.

Associate membership

Associate membership is $85 and is for non-members who wish to attend NZSIA/SBINZ courses. Successful Level One candidates receive full membership as standard.
