NSP Women’s Program: “MOUNTAIN TRAVEL & RESCUE Clinic”

“Rope Low-angle Rescue and Safe Backcountry Travel Practices”

This NSP MTR-C Program is a one-day CLINIC reviewing the basics of Knots and Anchors commonly used in the backcountry as well as Emergency Rescue Techniques (low-angle rescue) to Women NSP members and non-members. The day will begin with indoor classroom work reviewing knots and anchors and setting up low angle rescue setups. We will then take these skills into the field in the afternoon while performing backcountry travel practices. This is a “part one” of two Women’s programs for the NH NSP Region for 2018. This course is offered to both Women NSP and Non-NSP members to enhance their knowledge of Rope work and Low Angle Rescue techniques along with safe travel practices in the backcountry. Since knots, anchors and low angle rescue are “perishable” skills; this course is considered an introduction to these skills with experienced instructors in a safe, fun and comfortable environment.

Equipment: Field exercise will require AT ski gear with skins or Tele gear with skins. Alternatively, you can use snowshoes for transportation. You will need a daypack for carrying personal gear for day travel in the backcountry and snacks and hydration. Your own “personal protection equipment” including winter clothing appropriate for cold January day (layers, no cotton), eye protection, gloves, hats, hiking poles will be useful. We will spend approximately 4-5 hours in the field environment so please make sure you are familiar with and bring the “Ten Essentials.”

Senior OEC NIGHT Clinic - Pat's Peak

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.

In addition, since many Nordic patrollers are, or have been, alpine patrollers, arrangements have been made for any patroller attending who can arrive a day early to stay at Camp Allegany on Thursday night (no extra charge) and ski Holimont Ski Resort for half price ($29.50 with their NSP ID and a photo ID).

On the first day, the course begins with classroom work in Gorham, NH at the Town & Country Inn.  On the second and third day, we will ski tour in the Tuckerman Ravine and Huntington Ravine area of the cutler river drainage of the White Mountain national forest to work hands-on with our new knowledge, experiencing avalanche terrain in a new light.

Prerequisites for the course include physically fit conditioning, and the equipment to travel and spend a full day in the outdoor winter environment. You must be able to ski Black Diamond terrain.  Remember, it does get cold in March!

This course is recognized by the AAA (American Avalanche Association) and AIARE (American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education).

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.

All Classroom Based "Instructor Development" Course

Instructor Development course is a one-day course that prepares patrollers who have decided to become NSP instructors.  This course is a pre-requisite for all Instructor Training and is generic "in nature."  If you are planning on pursuing an instructor certificate in OEC, Mountain Travel, and Rescue, Avalanche or Alpine Toboggan Transportation, this course is your first step.  All disciplines require that you begin with Instructor Development.

Traditional Instructor Development Course is free and takes about 7 hours of instruction time.  It has a prerequisite reading assignment; the books will be emailed to you by the Instructors after registration is completed.  Click the Register link below to fill out the form and join us.

Other than the textbook reading, no other preparation is required.  This course is taught in the traditional classroom method used before the introduction of national's Hybrid video lectures.  Join us and let the ID Instructor guide you through the Instructor Development work the old fashioned way -- no computers!

NH Region schedules this course to prepare OEC Instructor Trainees who are planning on mentoring during the autumn OEC course season.  The next opportunity for ID courses begins with the winter ski season when the Self-Paced Hybrid E-Course opens in December.
