Who do you affiliate with

Postby mutant » Thu Jun 13, 2013 1:32 pm

I am quite interested as to the reasons why a kite school would choose one particular organisation over another to affiliate with.

Also are there any that you would not accept an instructors qualification from?

Different organisations I know of are
    IKO
    BKSA
    FFVL
    PASA
    VDWS
If you are a school owner maybe you would like to comment?

BKSA, because I'm British :lol: Only other one we have is IKO but there's not many IKO schools about. BKSA is quite highly respected globally and having done the course it I found it to be very good far exceeding what I was expecting.

Ah sorry didn't read the question, I'm an instructor not a school. With regard to travelling abroad IKO was always the one to have but have heard the a lot of schools are now happy to use BKSA instructors and it is possible to do a conversion course.
