think the yearly fee is 800usd to be an iko center. there were hundreds of schools paying a few years ago but now there are less than 80. infact they stopped listing them on their website because there are so few left. we were paying 550usd per year because we had 4 schools. we were one of their biggest customers but after some problems we all cancelled. it was as if they did not care. strange as the only thing they did well was sending out bills to collect money. surely they would care about 2200USD.
i started the kite safe associationhttp://www.kitesafeassociation.com/
you can print you own student rider cards and get your own insurance of this site all free of charge.
What kind of fees do you have to pay to IKO?
Also is there any other licence than IKO? I mean if you want to have your own kite school, do you have to be IKO certified or is there any other organization, where you can get your licence?
