Project: MODERN MOUNTAIN GUIDE OCCUPATION AND TRAINING FOR ENHANCING COMPETITIVENESS OF EUROPEAN MOUNTAIN TOURISM AND INCREASE WORKFORCE MOBILITY OF THE SECTOR
Description:

Globally, the International Union of Associations of mountain guides (IFMGA) is the only professional organization recognized as a regulatory factor and as regards the European Union is the organization imposed IFGMA professional standards in countries where such activity is regulated under Directive 36 / 2005 CE.

In these conditions all organizations accredited by IFGMA must follow specific requirements considering competencies necessary to possess as a mountain guide.

This project considers alignment to national qualification of Eastern partners to requirements recognized by IFGMA so their transfer of know-how to the East countries, ensuring recognition of this qualification within Europe and international level. Nevertheless, the IFMGA requirements are generally drawn-up, each country/institution having their own ways and methods to implement it. In plus, new competencies are required by the world of work and transition to a green economy. As part of its activities the project is aiming to develop green skills competences dedicated to “mountain guides” activities.
