Annual Refersher Requirements
Annually, all Alpine patrollers must be recertified in 4 areas, specifically:
Medical (OEC) Refresher
OET tobaggan handling
The Medical Refesher is a centralized event to help coordinate the complex logistics of that program.
CPR and Lift Evacuation recertifications normally take place at the host mountain, and may be coordinated with other patroller events.
OET Tobaggan Handling is held once there is enough snow and the condiitions allow for proper testing. This is normally coordinated with the host mountain's hill captains to ensure there are enough certified trainers to assist in the testing.
