Outdoor Emergency Care National Ski Patrol Certification

Training Description

Trains students to the nationally recognized National Ski Patrol (NSP) standards of emergency medical care in a ski-resort environment for certification in OEC (Outdoor Emergency Care). Outdoor Emergency Care is a training program tailored to the nonurban rescuer. OEC primarily meets the training needs for a ski-resort environment; OEC also meets the training needs of other outdoor-based emergency care providers, including wilderness medical technicians, mountaineering guides, members of search and rescue groups, mountain bike patrollers, and parks and recreation employees. Mountain resorts and recreational facilities in all 50 states recognize OEC as a required standard of care for all NSP personnel. Special Requirements: This course involves moderate physical activity and the ability to lift and carry other students with backboards and rescue litters in practice scenarios. All students must submit the OLP Health History and Physical Examination Attestation Form, completed and signed by a physician, verifying medical clearance for full participation. Students must be at least 16 years old to participate in this course. Those under 18 years of age require the written consent of a parent or guardian.
