WELCOME TO SIET
THE SCHOOL FOR INTERNATIONAL EXPEDITION TRAINING
Mission… We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit institution that is dedicated to providing risk management, technical, and leadership training to aspiring mountain guides, outdoor educators, and mountaineers. We provide unparalleled, cutting-edge training at an affordable tuition with a robust scholarship program.
Instruction… SIET courses are staffed with highly experienced, professional instructors who have extensive backgrounds in experiential education, alpine guiding, and personal expeditions. See our Instructor Info page for more details on our exceptional staff.
Program… Aspiring climbers who wish to become mountain guides, outdoor educators, or simply competent mountaineers, face a myriad of challenges as they progress from a novice to advanced level. Without instruction or mentorship, they experience a complicated and often dangerous learning curve. SIET helps its students through this phase by providing an educational experience that focuses on the skills students need to become more safe, confident, and competent leaders.
