Senior Program Kick-Off Meeting for both S&T and OEC

Attend a Senior Program Kick-Off meeting with Don Messier and Ed Sargent

The National Ski Patrol Senior Program is a national education opportunity that is offered at the region level broken down into two separate components.  If you are interested in becoming a Senior Candidate, please join us in an introductory meeting scheduled for Friday evening form 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the McIntyre Ski Area.

The Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) Senior component allows candidates opportunities to further develop and enhance skills in the areas of leadership, decision making, and problem management of complex emergency care situations that may be encountered in a ski patrol environment.

The Senior Ski and Toboggan program allows candidates opportunities to further develop and enhance advanced skills in the areas of toboggan handling and skiing, or snowboarding, on the most challenging terrain in the Region.

Successful completion of the Senior S&T component, which is now known as Outdoor Emergency Transportation (OET), requires attending Senior level clinics where Division certified Trainer’s help candidates develop their own self-paced training progression to understand and achieve the Senior skill level.

Attainment of the OEC component requires completion of three phases, training clinics, written exercises and a final on-hill evaluation.  The program is designed to both develop and challenge candidates’ skills in managing complex multiple injury and multiple patient situations that they can expect to encounter as ski patrollers.  Candidates will develop their skills not only as OEC technicians, but also as leaders, problem solvers and emergency scene managers.

Both of these programs are fun, challenging and educational, both will be offering a calendar of more than 10 training opportunities.  These events will be posted on the NH Region’s monthly calendar and will open for registration in December.  Requests for information can be directed to the Program Advisors:

Ed Sargent, Senior Outdoor Emergency Care Advisor
Don Messier, Senior Ski and Toboggan Advisor

Senior OEC Clinic @ Ragged Mountain

Training clinics are a significant and important part of the OEC Module of the Senior Program.  While the clinics are structured to help candidates prepare for a successful final evaluation, they serve a more important objective.  During clinics, candidates will be presented with realistic emergency scenarios that are complex in nature and require sound leadership, management and problem solving skills.

During clinic scenarios, candidates generally work in teams of three patrollers, one of whom serves as the team leader.  The scenarios will be designed to enhance and develop the management skills of the team leader.   It is a constructive process that sharpens the candidates’ skills and confidence, enabling solid reliable performance in complex and normally stressful emergency care situations.

Each candidate need to successfully perform as a leader in four clinic scenarios under the guidance of an OEC Trainer Evaluator to be eligible for the final evaluation.

Candidates are encouraged to attend several clinics, where they will have the opportunity to learn from one another as well as experienced trainers.  Feel free to contact the Advisor or any of the staff members to request additional Senior OEC training.

Senior OEC Pre-Course Classroom Clinic

This course is an introductory Senior OEC training course designed to prepare candidates for on-snow training and the high stress of the final exam.  It is held in a traditional classroom setting where students not only learn about the program's numerous performance objectives and the "critical standards" required to successfully pass; more importantly, students get a chance to peer into the inner workings of the human brain to learn about themselves.

Practicing to pass the Senior OEC exam is not enough.  Learning to understand what happens inside your own brain while conducting triage during a high stress medical management scenario is paramount.   This course helps candidates assemble winning strategies that can be used not only to pass the Senior exam, but to become better first-aiders, patrollers and rescuers.

Take this classroom pre-course to lay down a solid Senior testing foundation, then attend the required "on-the-snow clinics" to acquire the experience and practice needed for exam day.  We promise that every student will learn something valuable about themselves and about being effective test takers under stress. . .

ATI Candidate "Final Observations" -- Ragged Mountain

Alpine Toboggan Instructor (ATI) Candidates who are mentoring during the 2018 ski season are required to attend a teaching event called the "IT Final Observation."  At this event Instructor Trainers (IT) lead the group through the various lesson snippets taught during a typical "Toboggan Enhancement" course.  Each future ATI gets to teach two lessons to satisfy their requirement for appointment as a full NSP Instructor.

The first lesson category begins with Patroller Skills.  The Observing IT's start off with a demonstration of a Six-Pack inspired lesson snippet that lasts about 10 minutes.  This is meant to break the ice and set the level of expectation.  Following the demo, each candidate gets to progressively teach their topic until everyone gets a chance to show their stuff, employing ADAPT and positive immediate feedback techniques.  After lunch, there will be a second progressive string of teaching, related to Toboggan Handling.

Final Observations are always a fun day out on the snow.  The Observing IT's are there to help by guiding the ATI Candidates through the process of teaching and promise that their  final observation will be a fun and nurturing experience as they become full NSP Instructors in "OUTDOOR EMERGENCY TRANSPORTATION."

For anyone who wants to become an Alpine Toboggan Instructor at your local ski patrol, contact the Region's OET (formerly known as S&T) Administrator by following this email link.

Becoming an ATI requires teaching under the direction of a mentoring ATI.  Contacting the Region S&T Administrator will get you a list of available mentors.  It takes an entire ski season of teaching lessons to hone your skills as an ATI.  Final Observation before an NH Region IT is the last step.  As you train under mentors, an important element for all future ATI's is to observe and model the teaching styles of other Region S&T Staff Members.  A great way to discover if you want to become an ATI is to register for one of the Eastern Division "Patroller School" weekend events.  These are two-day get-away's held annually at Sunday River, ME and Killington, VT (check the region's Calendar for both events).

Once you are setup with an assigned Mentor, prepare to travel to ski patrol Toboggan Enhancement events around the Region.  Attending these event will not only expose you to the teaching styles of other ATI's and the necessary lesson material but will also give you an opportunity to teach a few snippets in front of clinic attendee's.

Prerequisite to becoming an ATI Candidate, or a candidate for any of NSP's instructor-ships, is attending the Instructor Development Course.  NH Region now teaches this online year-around.  Watch the Calendar for availability and visit the ID Courses page to sign up for the prerequisite.

The IT Final Observation requires that the ATI Candidate and their Mentors maintain the following two forms as the process of teaching lessons during the season progresses:

  1. NSP Instructor Application
  2. NSP Instructor Mentoring Progress Sign-off Form

Both forms can be found on the Region's Downloads webpage under Instructor Records.
