We offer two types of guide training programs at Northeast Guide Service - Registered Maine Guide in Recreation and Registered Maine Guide in Whitewater. Here is how you can become a Maine Guide and why it's a great way to spend your summer year after year.
A Recreational Maine Guide License allows you to lead outdoor trips in canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, ATV, and other day and overnight trips in the State of Maine. Learn and perfect all you need to know to successfully pass the State-administered test, including map & compass, lost person, watercraft laws, trip planning, safety, risk management, camping, outdoor cooking, rules and regulations, canoeing skills, the business side of guiding, and much more.
Our Recreation Guide Course is a 4-Day class, offered in May (May 17-20, 2013), open to the public to sign up and participate. Upon course completion, you will submit your application to the State of Maine to take the oral and written exam. Once you pass and become a Registered Maine Recreation Guide, you will have the opportunity to work for yourself and work for many outfitters in the State of Maine, one company in particular...Northeast Guide Service. Yes folks, we are hiring! Looking for a job? Once you have obtained your recreation guide's license in Maine, you can apply to work as a Recreation Guide for us. Our Recreation Guide Staff leads canoeing, kayaking, hiking and overnight trips.
Our Registered Maine Whitewater Rafting Guide Training is the best in the state, structured around the instruction of technical strokes, maneuvers, river knowledge, river safety and group leadership achieved through on-the-water whitewater skills, which prepares you better than any other guide training program to pass the State of Maine written exam. Our Registered Maine Guide Trainer’s will help you gain the confidence you need to earn the title of Registered Maine Whitewater Rafting Guide.
Our whitewater guide training is a 9-Day course offered at the end of May (May 24-June 2, 2013). Once you pass the written exam, you are eligible for employment as a Maine whitewater rafting guide in the State of Maine.
