Atlantic Climbing School is accredited by the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), the leading U.S. organization dedicated to the profession of mountain guiding and climbing instruction and enhancing the quality of  services offered to the public. 

ALL of our staff are certified by the AMGA as either Rock Guides, Rock Instructors or Single Pitch Instructors, and we are proud to be the ONLY guide service in Maine to have this distinction

The AMGA Accreditation Program grants accreditation status to companies that meet or exceed the high operational standards required by the AMGA during an extensive business review of their operations.

Accreditation provides a consistent and meaningful standard by which to judge the reliability and professionalism of a climbing service. It informs the general public and land managers that a program utilizes guides who are certified and that all guides in the program have received formal training appropriate to the terrain they guide.
