SVSEF is offering an Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) training and certification course to the public during the month of October. OEC is considered the standard of training for emergency care in the outdoor environment. It is recognized by resorts and recreational facilities in all 50 states, and is the National Ski Patrol’s training program for patrollers.
The course will take place October 3-20, with classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The course combines online and classroom work, with classes held at the SVSEF Engl training facility at Warm Springs. A practical and multiple choice test will be administered the week following the course (dates TBD).
This course is free for SVSEF alpine staff (upon successful program completion) and $600 for all others.
If you have questions or would like to register, please contact Alpine Program Director Scott McGrew (208.726.4129, scott@svsef.org).
