Personally I would beg to differ, maybe back in the day yeah. Any yahoo can set up some top ropes and interact with clients at their home crag and have a day with out incedent like most guide days are. Its when the sh*#t gets thick is when it counts.
I understand about internal training but I would'nt spend hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars training an employee on basic rescue techniques and scenerios when they need to know that stuff coming in the door. Your not gonna find that out in 1.5 hours before clients arrive at the crag. If an incedent happened with a client and that new employee you just met, that maybe considered gross negligence in most states.
Would any guides at the big guide companies care to chime in on this. Im interested to know if this is true.
