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. Furthermore teaching content quality can be improved significantly since only participants with a certain qualification are admitted to the respective Update.
You will learn how to plan and carry out multi-day hikes from hut to hut.
