Companion Rescue Course

We are offering the Companion Rescue Skills Course. It is a 1-day review, covering all facets of companion rescue, including the use of shovels, transceivers and probes as well as rescue strategies.  This is a great review if you have previously completed a RAC or AST course. Course dates are on an as-needed basis and cost is $75.00/person. (Note: this course is endorsed by Avalanche Canada.)

The course consists of a 3-hour virtual classroom session including a general review of avalanche particulars and companion rescue protocols. You will spend the afternoon practicing companion rescue skills in the field. Students will be brought up to date on the latest companion rescue techniques.

Please note, all courses will be delivered with Covid-19 protocols in mind. Please review our Covid-19 “Best Practices” procedures here.

Classroom sessions will be provided virtually, in the comfort and safety of your home or office.
