Federations Accredited by Training Standards
The UIAA Training Standards is an internationally recognized accreditation and certification scheme which examines and evaluates the training and assessment programs of our member federations. The process includes an independent assessment of the training provided to voluntary leaders and instructors by a UIAA expert which is then endorsed by an international panel of experts.
The Model Training Standards for Voluntary Leaders and Instructors managed by members of the Training Standards Panel makes it possible for mountaineers from different countries to recognise each other’s qualifications.
To be eligible for the UIAA Training Standards Label program, you must be a UIAA member (primary and associate) or their delegated providers with an educational program for volunteer leaders and instructors or trying to institute an education program with a robust quality assurance system. Please review this information about the application process. If you are not a member of the UIAA please consider becoming a member.
