IKO Assistant & Instructor Course

IKO Assistant & Instructor Course

Learn, progress and teach kiteboarding with IKO to be recognized for your skills and services internationally.

Kiteboarding is a very young extreme sport and still in its development and growth stage. After 15 years of research, comments, testing and development, the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) has created a full-circle program in several languages ​​to teach and train new kiteboarders, instructors and assistants quickly and safely.

They’re the trainers of instructors with a mission to develop the sport safely and appropriately. IKO has established the international standard for service and progress on a global scale.

The course is designed for you to become a competent Assistant or Instructor. You’ll be able to learn through a recognized, first-class method for teaching safely and efficiently, from beginners to independent kitesurfers.

When you obtain the IKO title, you will be able to work in any school worldwide as an instructor assistant or as a level 1 instructor.
