“Outstanding instructors!  I don’t have enough words.  Great teachers and I appreciated having help with the language barrier through translation.”

As outdoor professionals and guides for over a dozen years, Sentinel Outdoor Institute’s founders have worked closely alongside local guides on nearly every continent.  It was from this unique perspective that the need for continued, high quality education and training for local guides around the world became apparent.  Their desire, need and capacity for such training inspire SOI’s enthusiasm and drive for improving safety and education in all outdoor pursuits.  It is with a great sense of responsibility and honor that SOI serves guides throughout the world in their education and training.
