Eastern Division Outdoor Emergency Transportation (OET) and EMARI region asked NH to help register NSP members division-wide seeking to attend the SUNDAY RIVER PATROLLER SCHOOL.
EMARI and Maine Regions partner annually to organize the event, which attracts more than 80 NSP participants. Patrollers come from all over the division to attend a two-day Patroller School where Toboggan Enhancement and Snowsport Enhancement seminars are offered at all levels. NH Region was asked to help streamline registration using our web-based educational event and e-commerce computer servers.
The goal is to provide customers seeking ski patrol specific training to have a simplified registration page for choosing courses during the two-day event. Follow this link to the Sunday River PATROLLER SCHOOL Registration to see the course offerings. There are toboggan, skiing, and snowboarding events. Instructors looking for final certification and TE Candidates needing an evaluation, come together with Division Staff members and NSP members purchasing personalized ski patrolling educational seminars. It’s like receiving small group lessons on the terrain of Sunday River — choose senior level lessons or intermediate level for those who want an informative stress-free seminar. The Eastern Division Women’s Program also offers women-only events.
The NSP Senior OEC program 2017-18 season has begun
Throughout the ski season, OEC Senior Program staff run several training clinics helping participants expand and improve their leadership and patroller skills as they work through complex situations and comprehensive patient care. Clinics are an ideal opportunity to learn from one another and have been planned at a variety of venues to improve accessibility and enhance training.
Our next clinic will be held at Mount Sunapee, January 7, 2018, starting at 9 am and concluding no later than 3 pm. Training will be on-hill so bring your outdoor gear, but please leave your patrol jackets at home as this is a training event and participants will not be “on duty.”
It is very important you register for each event so we can plan resources to serve you better. Registration for the clinics is easy! Go to the NH Region Ski Patrol website Calendar, review the full schedule of events, select the date of the senior OEC clinic you wish to attend, and click “REGISTER NOW” (candidates will receive an email notification with all my contact info, please call with questions).
Hope to ski you there. To contact me, Ed Sargent, Senior Training Coordinator
