recognize real quality

Official Badges

It is very hard to figure out what the quality of a ski instructor | ski guide | mountain guide is. In Austria we have three training stages for ski instructor. The highest and the last qualification is the “Staatl. Skilehrer” (ski instructor). On top of it they can be qualified as “Staatl. Skiführer” (ski guide) with a separate course and certificate. Just with that qualification is it possible to be a self employed ski instructor and to get the concession from the Office of the Vorarlberg Provincial Government today. All of us have to label their uniforms with the official mark of the “Staatl. Skilehrer und Skiführer” and the mark for the concession.

It is easier with the mountain guides. The have just one qualification and at the end when they pass all the exams the get the certificate as “IFMGA | UIAGM | IVBV”. With the mountain guides is it the same as with the ski instructor. They also have to label their uniforms with the official mark of the “IFMGA | UIAGM | IVBV” when they wanna work as a self employed mountain guide.
