COURSE / ACA Lead Pro Guide

June 22 @ 7:00 am - June 24 @ 4:00 pm

Excursions of Escalante will host an intensive three day Course here at the ACA Headquarters. This course will help prepare students for the leadership and problem solving portions of the ACA Lead Pro Guide Assessment. This professional level training will focus on customer evaluation, group management and guide/client challenges. The so called “soft skills”, the ones that regularly dictate the success or failure of a commercially guided tour.

This program is for strong and experienced candidates. Those who want to excel at their craft. We highly recommend visiting the American Canyoneering Association’s web site and thoroughly reviewing ALL prerequisites a successful candidate must possess. It is critical that our students have strong technical skills, and ample canyoneering experience in order to gain the full benefit of this Professional level Leadership course.
