What do you mean guide power?
6 trips minimum before anyone is legal with the Parks Service. But each company is different after that point. Some will put you in a guide spot right away. A few companies love free help, and will let you row bags as long as you're willing and won't put you on as a guide unless you really push it. Some won't even give you a baggage boat till you have 6 trips or so. You also have to have a WFR, CPR, and a Coconino County food handlers permit to be a guide, but not to row bags.
