This one-day (8-hour) course is intended to be retaken on a regular basis in order to keep abreast of the best practices in rescue techniques and gear. New participants will learn companion rescue, and returning students will expand their skills and knowledge with advanced topics and realistic scenario practice.
AIARE Rescue is appropriate for both new and experienced recreational backcountry travelers, as well as aspiring avalanche professionals. AIARE recommends that all backcountry travelers keep their skills current by taking an Avalanche Rescue Course at least every other year. The AIARE Avalanche Rescue course is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2 and Pro 1 Courses.
