About Us

Introduction and History

The Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors Inc. (APSI) is a not-for-profit association representing approximately 1000 members. Our members include Alpine, Snowboard, Nordic, Telemark and Adaptive instructors, coaches, examiners and other snowsports industry professionals. 

APSI was formed in 1976 when we received government and international recognition as the Australian industry leaders for providing training and assessment to ski instructors. In 1985 we became responsible for the training and accreditation of all Australian Snowsport Instructors. 

Our goals

APSI is dedicated to providing our members with the highest quality educational training, accreditation services and products which directly contribute to an exceptional guest experience. 

These services are delivered with a sense of enjoyment, friendliness and pride, whilst continuously evolving to meet the demands of the Australian Alpine resorts and their guests. 

Our highly skilled members are committed to exceeding guest expectations, by building relationships that leave a lasting memory of a uniquely Australian experience. 

How we achieve these goals

Our goals are achieved by having committed people in the right roles. 

An elected board of management considers all executive decisions whilst the day to day business of the APSI is conducted by 1 full time employee; Andrew Rae, Training and Programs Director. 

We have elected technical committees for each discipline that recommends the future directions for our teaching system. There are a further 80-100 trainers/examiners employed on a seasonal basis each year to run courses and exams.
