ASEGUIM organizes and executes through ESGUIM all academic endeavors related to the curriculum for guides and aspiring guides.
ESGUIM started operational functions in 1994 after the successful training of 8 Ecuadorian mountain guides at ENSA (ecole natiionalle de ski et alpinisme - France) under the sponsorship of the CETUR (former ministry of tourism). The first selected guides came back with the firm decision to create an academic training to improve the guiding structure in Ecuador.
The general objective of ESGUIM is to keep a high level of technical skills among our guides. For that purpose, a series of courses are prepared continuously. It is also an objective of ESGUIM to maintain cooperational agreements with national (Ministry of Tourism) and international (UIAGM-IFMGA) mountaineering organizations.
