I am a college junior and I am seriously looking into professional mountaineering guiding after school.
I am already Aiare I Avalance Certified. I am looking at spending 2 years down in Patagonia with the mountaineering school
to recieve my WEA Mountaineering Instructor Guide Cert, WFR, Avalanche II and Leave no trace master course and avalanche I instructor course.
Does anyone know anything about this school or their programs, I havent seen any reviews other than the ones on the site itself.
How does a WEA compare to an AMGA course. It seems to me the AMGA course is just certifications on what you already know its not all taught during their
8-12 day course seminars. The WEA seems to take longer and is more intensive, and actually teaching the skills?
I also dont see any other programs that offer the WEA, is it a nationally recognized as a AMGA guide position.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated
