Any guide joining the Pro Guiding Service team will be highly qualified and will be involved in an internationally accredited certification program, such as the IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations), the AMGA (American Mountain Guides Association) and AIARE (American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education). It requires years of intense training, testing, and supervised guiding to become fully certified. Please click on these links to get more information on IFMGA, AMGA and AIARE qualifications.
Once employed, our young guides are mentored by some of the most highly trained and qualified guides in the industry. In its 22 year history, Pro Guiding Service has produced many IFMGA guides, AMGA instructors, an AMGA Lifetime achievement award recipient, book authors and route pioneers.
