ISMF affirms the belief of WADA & UNESCO that education is a central theme of any programme designed to remove doping from sports. A successful programme of anti-doping worldwide can only function with adequate education of athletes and the whole sporting community. The ISMF firmly believes that athletes and their support system should be well aware of all rights, obligations, anti-doping precautions, methods, doping control systems and prohibitive substances. It also reiterates that athletes should be aware of consequences of doping not just in terms of doping code violations and disciplinary measures thereof, but also about the health hazards caused due to doping substances.
The ISMF with help of WADA and other anti-doping agencies will raise awareness about anti-doping in the mountaineering community. ISMF and its member associations are committed to provide the ideal environment for ‘fair play’ and educate every member of the mountaineering community about the harm from doping to the sport and the individual(s) concerned.
ISMF Anti-Doping Certificate
At the beginning of the 2020 season, the ISMF will launch its anti-doping online education programme.
All athletes competing in the upcoming ISMF season must pass the test and obtain a certificate.
Although this education is only mandatory for ISMF licensed athletes, the ISMF hopes it can be useful to anyone interested in finding more information about TrueSki.
Before starting the journey through our course, please take a careful look at the step-by-step guideline here.
To successfully pass the course and obtain a certificate, applicants need 11 right answers out of 20 questions in total. If the Athlete does not succeed the first time, he will have other chance(s) to complete the course.
