Dreaming about becoming a guide?

We will provide you with an efficient path toward professional training and certification.

There is no shortage of certification schemes for canyon guides offered by various organizations around the world. Some are quite good, but most expect an aspiring guide to complete a series of courses only with that organization.

There is nothing wrong with that, except that the best guides typically acquire their knowledge and skills from a variety of sources, both formal and informal.

Canyon Guides International (CGI) provides a path to an international certification that is based on validating four things:
