AMGA certification is often required to instruct at many climbing areas across the U.S., and having AMGA certified guides on staff is often required for a guide service to obtain liability insurance or terrain access. Colorado Mountain School has more guides certified at international levels and more AMGA trainers on staff than any other guide service in Colorado.
The primary focus of our guide training courses is to balance effective risk management with maximal client and student rewards. Courses focus on both technical an non-technical skills, learning to apply the appropriate techniques in various circumstances, and developing the ability to seamlessly change from one technique to another.
