What is the UIMLA?

UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations). An International Mountain Leader (IML)is a person that has been trained and assessed against the challenging requirements of UIMLA. The IML qualification lets the leader guide clients in different mountains all over the world, leading them on high altitude treks, trail runs, and snowshoeing excursions, where the skills and equipment of alpinism are not required (glaciers, permanent snow, or where the planned use of a rope is necessary). The UIMLA’s training for certified mountain leaders meets IFMGA standards.

Founded in 2004, the UIMLA is an international governing body that represents International Mountain Leaders across the world. One of the most important targets for UIMLA is to represent the profession at the international level, setting equal standards of qualifications for all International Mountain Leaders (IMLs), by ensuring that the “common platform standard” for all IML leaders is adhered to. UIMLA promotes the profession and supports the cooperation between IMLs from different countries.
