Avalanche Rescue Course

Quick Details


Avalanche Rescue Procedure Course

AIARE Avalanche Rescue is a one-day stand-alone course that is intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to stay current with best practices in avalanche rescue techniques and equipment.

The course is suitable for both new and returning participants as each course will cover both the current practices for basic companion rescue as well as more advanced scenarios. All students will be shown systems for additional practice on their own in between courses.

Each participant will receive a rescue card at the end of the course and will be given individual professional coaching.

AIARE recommends that all backcountry users take this course at least every other year in order to maintain a current skillset and continuously learn and review the latest techniques in avalanche rescue.

It is important to note that the avalanche rescue components previously taught on an AIARE Level 1 course have been deemphasized in order to provide more field time for developing the decision-making skills that prevent backcountry users from being caught in avalanches.
