The seminar of guide-guides is a half-year course on preparation of professionals in the field of tourism and travel. Every week in the tourist club there are lectures on various topics: the basics of safety when entering the route, proper nutrition in the hike, first aid, camping equipment, the nature of Kamchatka and much more.
Experienced instructors conduct practical classes with students, where future guides more effectively absorb the acquired knowledge.
