The online avalanche self-rescue course is part of Avalanche Canada’s STA 1 training and is ideal for starting to move through the winter mountains outside the controlled areas of the ski resorts.
Here you will learn what requirements the rescue material must have (DVA, shovel and probe) to choose the best one for your purchase. All the protocol you must follow in case you have an accident and have to rescue a colleague. But above all, you will learn to follow all the steps in detail to be able to carry out a rescue as quickly and efficiently as possible, avoiding the most common mistakes that most people make.
This course can be extended with our course:
-Online course “AVALANCHE RISK MANAGEMENT
-Workshops in-person Avalanche Rescue sessions
Or if you want to delve deeper into safety on snowy terrain, you can contact us to take one of our personalized “Risk Management on white terrain” courses (only for people already started in the world of winter mountains)</ p>
This online course is necessary, but not sufficient, to be able to move through the winter mountains safely. We encourage you to expand your knowledge with us or with any other accredited instructor after taking this course.
Usually practicing this type of protocols is essential to be able to correctly resolve a real situation. This course will allow you to follow a methodology and have a reference guide in case you want to practice avalanche rescues.
