EMT, AEMT and Paramedics

Are you an EMT, AEMT or Paramedic?

Do you have an insane love for winter?

Are you a skier?

If you answered yes to most of the above questions, Then the Lee Canyon Ski Patrol is looking for you!

The Lee Canyon Ski Patrol is currently seeking experienced medical professionals who have an interest in responding to call in a different environment. We work on the snow and in the backcountry throughout the winter months with patients that seem to find themselves in odd situations. This challenges even experienced Patrollers on a day to day basis. Are you up for the challenge? Yes, then join us!

The National Ski Patrol Board has recently adopted new language that allows currently SNHD or Nationally Registered EMT’s to challenge the Outdoor Emergency Care course by taking a modified final exam. This exam will consist of 4 skill stations and 2 scenario stations. You will however, have only one chance to take and pass the exam. If you fail, you will be required to take the entire OEC course and final exam again.

In order to challenge you must become a member of the National Ski Patrol. You may do so by going to their website, www.NSP.org and creating an account. Once you have created an account, please email the Patrol Representative (PatrolRep@LeeCanyonSkiPatrol.org) with your full name, NSP Member Number which was assigned to you (6 digits) and a copy of current state or national license. The Patrol Rep will then add you to the patrols roster on the NSP website and notify you that you can now pay your national dues and register to challenge the exam.
