How to become a patroller Candidate patrollers must be affiliated with a specific National Ski
Patrol squad currently accepting candidates for training. Training will consist
of completing the OEC (outdoor emergency care) class, requiring around 100 hours
of classroom time, in addition to completing the American Red Cross class for
professional-rescue CPR certification. On-the-hill training consists of basic
ski proficiency and toboggan handling, along with introduction to chair
evacuation procedures. Most candidate programs are 2-year mentoring programs,
which will prepare the candidate for passing of the NSP Basic Hill test, and the
NSP OEC test. To sum it up, candidates will need strong skiing skills,
commitment to OEC level emergency care, a willingness to learn, and a high
fitness level, with a knack for both independent decision making, and working
within an integrated team. Most of all, patrollers have a great commitment to
the patrol and ski area management.
