  • For the instructors: it allows you to access to the documentation, declare your school and have it appear on APPI schools worldwide map, it also allows you to register your students in APPI, and access our insurance offer...

Go in your “My account” page

Then click on the red PAY button.

You can pay by VISA card, MASTERCARD, Diners Club International, Alipay or Unionpay.

Due to many problems with Paypal and their incompetence, this method of payment is no longer offered.


Via an APPI school

In some countries it may be complicated to pay with the website because bank fees are high, or because most of the people do not have credit cards. If you meet with an APPI instructor he could pay for you (at his discretion) thru his school (button « pay for a member » in this school section). You can then pay him directly in cash.
