The home nation governing bodies have now split from BASI (see SSS etc sites) and are running their own instructor qualifications courses in conjunction with IASI, and BASI are no longer participating in the jointly developed coaching pathway (several modules are currently required for BASI quals). This split seemingly driven in part by UK snowsport resort requirements. Not clear what exactly is going on or the direction of travel (strategy?!), but looks like a lesser role in UK snowsports for BASI. They are also currently defending a legal claim for 500k, with outcome unlikely to be favourable. Difficult straits ...
