Outdoor Emergency Care NSP Certification (National Ski Patrol)

OverviewPre-RequisitesOutcomesCredentials

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 non-urban 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.
