  1. Hello,

    What is the benefit of becoming a PI over a Hiking Guide or Apprentice Guide. Is there a change inthe scope of practice?

    Can a non-PI own and run a business?

    Thank you,

    • Hi Jacob!
      Your chances of getting the permit to start a hiking company are much higher as PI. However you can own a hiking business and not be a guide but you have to employ certified guides. The current ratio AI guides to PI guides is 1:3, so for every 3 AI guides you need to have 1 PI guide working for you.
      I hope this helps.
