I want to find out if there are any Summer Mountain Leadership qualifications in Italy (specifically South Sardinia) that don’t require you to be knowledgeable in mountaineering. We are wanting to be qualified to lead groups of tourists up low altitude, long trails in South of Sardinia. Do you know what qualifications would be required as a minimum for this? We will be qualified in the UK as Summer Mountain Leaders by then, but we will be moving to Sardinia and want to know if it will be valid and legal to set up a touring company there with UK qualifications, otherwise we need to find out what the Italian version is? Same goes for rock climbing, we will be qualified instructors here in the UK, but I don’t think this is valid in Italy/Sardinia.

Why not direct your enquiries to the Italian Alpine Club, who might be able to point you in the right direction? https://www.club-arc-alpin.eu/en/about-us/member-associations/cai/

This is the equivalent and no ML Summer is not a valid qualification. You would have to go to IML level for that. It may well just be simpler to to the AMM qual instead.

By the way it's probably also useful for you to know that in Italy there are many different colleges aswell, each of which set their own regulations for standards etc. It is well worth checking out which is relevant for you:

For example when I was looking at getting a guides ticket, the requirements for registration were quite wildly different for Veneto, Trentino and Alto Adige, this Trentino being a good notch easier than the others...
