This course is designed for Professional Ski Patrollers, Search and Rescue Team members, Law Enforcement/EMS/Fire and Mountain Guides. The rescue-driven curriculum builds on the basic skill set introduced in Level 1 & 2 avalanche courses. The majority of this syllabus will focus on the management of both large and small scale organized rescue from the initial deployment of rapid response teams to multi-day, multi-agency operation logistics. The components of this course include self-paced online learning, online conference calls, and field sessions.
