REC B 0003 - Canyoning - Training for commercial guides
Sonthofen 1999

The IKAR Terrestrial Rescue Commission considers canyoning to be a potentially highly dangerous mountain sport. Guiding groups in canyons requires highest mountaineering and aquatic competency. Only very comprehensive training curricula can guarantee that such requirements are met.
People, who are guiding others on canyoning trips on a commercial, i.e. paid basis must therefore hold a nationally recognized training certification.
