The main goal of the cooperation with RMGA consists in information support of the official status of mountain guides in the international Alpine Community, assistance in the communication of guides with international clients and partners, popularization of programs for professional training of mountain guides.
"Signing the partnership agreement with RMGA is the first step of our strategy, the development of which is planned in all countries having official organizations representing the interests of mountain guides, - states Sergey Kofanov. - The verification of professionals in the outdoor industry is a relevant issue for many people, and the aim of the MountainPlanet.com project is to help people avoid mistakes while choosing a qualified specialist. Our platform is particularly designed in order to study the market of the offered guided services around the world with the most possible verified information related to qualifications. By verifying the information with mountain guides associations, we can control the reliability of data and its completeness even better. I am grateful to my Russian colleagues for taking part in the program, which will help us realize the conceived and improve the system in the interests of all representatives of the global Alpine Community."

And we particularly appreciate that MountainPlanet.com focuses on professionals who have received or are getting formed and certified in their countries. From my side, as the head of the Russian Association, I am interested in profitable representation of our guides in the international alpine environment and increase of their competitive advantages. I hope that by the time of the RMGA joining the IFMGA, our guides will form a positive opinion in a professional and amateur environment, and this won’t take place without the participation of MountainPlanet.com."
