This 18.5 hour classroom based course is designed specifically to help you develop the essential skills required for pursuing a Maine Guides License. There is no field component to this course due to the lack of a field component on the state exam. All aspects of this course are specifically geared towards to actual components of the exam. Students who also wish to gain more practical on-water skills my sign up for an additional fee for a Recreation Guide Training day course in the early summer.
