2019 OEC (Outdoor Emergency Care) course
Feb 19th, 2018
This is an advance notice that there will be a full OEC (Outdoor Emergency Care) course again this year. The course is a hybrid with an on-line component starting in June and a classroom component at Mt. Washington in september (over 2 weekends).
The OEC is an internationally recognized certification provided by the NSP (National Ski Patrol) based on the US EMT-B with an outdoor sports focus. There are currently 32 members of the MWSPA with this certification and over 300 throughout BC (Whistler/Blackcomb, Grouse - Guides and Heli, Kayak, etc..)
Course costs have not yet been determined but are on a cost-recovery basis so will be reasonable in comparison to equivalent certifications. The certification is renewed 1/3 annually at our training weekend.
