What does "Certified Guide" means?

If you want to go outdoors on an adventure, make sure to rely on a certified guide. To earn the title of certified guide, a professional must take classes and pass exams. Depending on the country the guide operates, the activity, and other factors, a guide is certified only if he is an official National or International Guides Association member.

For example, if you want to go outdoor climbing or back-country skiing in Italy, IFMGA UIAGM mountain guides are the only professionals that can guide you. 

If you want to go on trekking, depending on the difficulty, AMM or GAE guides can bring you there.
