Many of them has passed the course of mountain guides, they have certificates, and they are members of GMGA (Georgian mountain guides association). International Guides Association (IFMGA/UIAGM) recognizes this course, and it is based on association standards. Teaching and all exams conducted by IFMGA/UIAGM specialists and trainers with participation and supervision. Georgia GMGA is an aspirant country for IFMGA/UIAGM, and soon in September of 2020, it will be a full-fledged member and every guide who has GMGA certificates automatically will become the guide of IFMGA/UIAGM. Nowadays in Georgia, exist 15 GMGA guides and 2 IFMGA guides. Unfortunately, in Georgia, we do not have legislative regulation, which forbids working as a mountain guide without certificates and licenses. Still, the legislative base has been prepared, and soon it comes into force. Therefore, it isn't effortless to choose professional mountain guide. We are trying to avoid unprofessional services to our guests, and from our side, we take responsibility for professionalism our guides and classification.
