Presenters, team leaders and contracted instructors are appointed based on their knowledge and experience, healthy and balanced values, sober conduct and professionalism.

They are all people with experience in adventure and are excited about challenges. They have a positive lifestyle and the ability to work together as a team.

Over and above the specialist contracted instructors, iALA uses the approach of referrals to individuals that can give specialist attention to specific situations.
