About us

The CIC e.V. is a non-profit organisation that evolved out of the CEC, which was founded in1995. It is therefore the oldest canyon guide training programme worldwide. Starting in France, the then CEC alloweda transfer of technical knowledge to other, mostly German-speaking, European countries. That expertise has since been the basis of many training programmes for canyoning guides.

The CIC views itself as an innovative organisation that is constantly developing and researching in the field of canyoning in order to bring the best advantages to its members.
