A first selection accepts only the applicants who hold a significant mountaineering experience rock-climbing and ice-climbing, ski-mountaineering, high-altitude mountaineering ; a second selection involves four sessions of practice, focused on mountaineering knowledge and both classical and modern techniques. Furthermore, a Committee of Guide judges the candidates and admits to the training course only the selected ones. The training course covers all mountaineering activities, from rock-climbing to skiing, from ice-climbing to high-altitude rescue, in addiction to theoretical teachings. The Trentino region, together with the Alto Adige and the Valle d'Aosta, are the only Italian regions where the courses are held annually.
