Advanced training exclusive for tour leaders and youth leaders (Tourenführer*innen and Jugendleiter*innen)
„Update“ means refreshing and upgrading. Techniques and doctrines change, gear requirements are fine-tuned, norms discussed, knowledge and skills need to be refreshed. In addition to your high-quality Übungsleiter training, your continuous training is one of our main concerns, since you are a key player in your section. Updates also serve as a means to fulfill your obligation to get further training in your capacity as Tourenführer*innen - one course out of the many offered by the Akademie in every 4 years.
During an Update, Tourenführer*innen (tour leaders), Jugendleiter*innen (youth leaders) and Familiengruppenleiter*innen (family group leaders) will be familiarized with the state of the art as well as latest trends and news in their respective field - a helpful and relevant quality assurance tool for the courses offered by the sections and alpine clubs.
The new GetReady training segment, which is open to all members of the Alpinteam (alpine team) and Jugendteam (youth team), permits us to elaborate on the content of the existing Updates and narrow them down according to the pre-qualifications of the participants. Teaching content quality can be improved significantly since only participants with a certain qualification are admitted to the respective Updates.
Challenging trails and alpine paths are always part of demanding mountain tours. With this Update you will receive valuable information on how to guide groups in difficult terrain safely and competently.
