Free and Discounted Accounts for Guides

Other guides or outdoor professionals in a consumer facing role may qualify as well, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unsure about your qualifications.
Requesting an Account
In order to request an account you will need an up to date verification of your status with your organization this needs to be dated within 1 year of the request or unexpired with an expiration date visible.
Examples of verification include a ID card issued by your organization, a letter of good standing on agency letterhead, or a copy of your pay stub (feel free to black out any sensitive information). IDs without expiration dates, paystubs without a job title, and certification cards are not sufficient to show that you’re current with an agency and in a first response role. For federal law enforcement, who cannot reproduce credentials digitally, please feel free to either use a paystub, or e-mail email@example.com directly from your verifiable federal e-mail address.
You can request a free or discounted account here.

Volunteer organizations qualify for large discounts on team accounts. Find out more here or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
