Brief information from one of our sponsors, Northeast Mountain Guiding:
We've been operating as a guiding outfit for over 4 years now and are one of the largest and busiest guiding outfits in the Eastern US. We operate in the Northeastern US, Southwestern US, Southeastern US, Mid-Atlantic US, Colorado, Alaska and close to 20 other countries around the world through affiliate guiding outfits. We currently have 7 offices worldwide and are working on our 8th office in North Carolina.
All of our US guides hold a CPR for the Professional Rescuer certification. We have Wilderness EMTs, Remote Paramedics, Registered Nurses and Wilderness First Responders on staff at all times. Our Wilderness First Responders and EMTs are certified with the state they guide in because most states are not "Nationally registered" states so being certified in that state is a must when treating patients in order to be covered under state laws and regulations. Our US based guides hold certifications through various organizations. Our rock climbing guides are trained and/or certified through the Professional Climbing Guides Institute (PCGI) and/or the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA). We have PCGI Top-Rope to Multi-Pitch Guides and AMGA Single Pitch Instructors to full Rock Guides on staff. We are also course providers for the Professional Hiking Guides Association and the Professional Climbing Guides Institute. Our Backpacking and Mountaineering Guides are certified through the Professional Hiking Guides Association. Our water sport based guides hold certifications for the course they are instructing through the American Canoe Association.
