Training for mountain leaders
In 2011 we organized the first guide-accompanier training with the help of Pierre-Joseph Copier, an experienced mountain guide based in Montmaur en Diois in the Drôme (26), and a Nordic walking specialist. The training started with a theoretical training of several weeks, and continued with field trips to put into practice the lessons learned beforehand. Since then, each year, we have set up a training course for the profession of guide before the beginning of the tourist season. The training aims at giving practical and theoretical skills to the guides. The training program includes the following disciplines
Food and beverages
Fauna and flora
The practice of the French language
For some subjects, a theoretical introduction is provided. For the others, the practice is done with field trips, visiting possible itineraries and teaching the future guides to lead a group in real conditions. The peculiarity of our association is obvious for our students, because we train not only to give diplomas, but what is essential, we train them to work by trying to place them in different tourist agencies, which we manage to do successfully .
