  • Use search and rescue techniques 
  • Consider and apply preventative measures
  • In case of avalanche, know sequence of actions
  • Comprehend the function of airbags
  • Transceiver skills (understand functions and how to use)  
  • Reflect on multiple burial situations 
  • Organize a group rescue 
  • Identify post-incident considerations

This course is open to any backcournty recreationist, as there are no prerequisites to the course. If you're interested in more avalanche training, visit the Avalanche Skills Training.
