- Become a Guide in Training (GIT)
- Participate on at least one MMC trip
- Have a current Wilderness First Aid or higher certification
- Have completed a guide seminar for the track you are pursuing (Hiking, Canoeing, Climbing)
- Have completed a logistics module
- Have a valid 7 or 15-passenger van license (if you are eligible)
- Lead one or more co-leads
Co-leads are an opportunity to practice (and be evaluated on) the skills that you’ve learned in the guide seminar. Boating and Climbing tracks require a minimum of two co-leads before consideration for full guide status.
Information to Keep in Mind
Co-leads must be led by one GIT (two with Head Guide approval) and one advanced guide. A trip with less than 4 participants may not count as a co-lead. The advanced guide will review the GIT and determine action steps in conjunction with the Head Guide.
Will take place once a semester and be a minimal time commitment (we will car-camp). Lots of fun will be had.
All guides and advanced guides will attend a first-aid scenario refresher once a semester to maintain guide status. This can include scenarios as part of MiddView/FOO, helping with a guide seminar medical scenario, or attending a formal medical training.
