Glacier Guides Ice-Training Course Schedule 2012It´s that time again!
The Arctic Family „Glacier Guides Training Course“ is a 5 day prep course for candidates wanting to guide on
the glacier tongues. The course is about 45 hour in total and we expect candidates to have basic knowledge or rope work,mountaineering, hiking, rock- and ice-climbing, glacier hiking and mountain rescue.Attached to the documents is the GG Guide Handbook that include all the techniques needed to successfully prepare for the daysahead. Please note - this document and all other documents associated with this course are for your eye´s only.The following schedule is a rough outline of the days with subjects of each day listed. Each day has a lecture component that will beheld inside at Fagurhólsmýri Base Camp.
We will meet at Fiskislóð (Arctic storage space) on the evening of April 16th at 19:00 with all our gear (see gear list attached). Fromthere we will drive our bus East to Fagurhólsmýri approx 4 hours, we will make a short dinner stop on the drive
. If you have anycomplications regarding you needing to leave early you will have to arrange your own transport 
. We will return to Reykjavík on thebus late evening on the 21st of April.
Candidates shop their own food/lunch/snacks for the days, there are cooking facilities at Fagurhólsmýri. We will be about 15students in total so we suggest you arrange dinners in groups (see below) and cook for one night each group for everyone, pleaseaccount for the 5 instructors as well.
(those of you coming from abroad/out of town ask your group partners to shop group dinners for you and bring cash to refund or make arrangements quickly, the top person on each list is in charge that this gets done)
Due to the nature of our business we should all be ready to change the outline of the days on short notice to make the best use of ourdays.
