Our current primary objective is to develop a motorized-specific training curriculum for avalanche training, rescue, and education. We are working closely with AIARE to develop a training outline and procedure that integrates snowmobiles, the distances we travel, and the tools we carry. Please keep checking back with us, as we expect to have our first class published and available by May 1st, 2014.
The mission of the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education AIARE is to: ‘Save Lives Through Avalanche Education'. AIARE courses are designed to be a complete program of avalanche education. Within each course the lesson plans, student materials, and teaching aids are fully integrated. What you hear and see when an instructor delivers the content of a lesson plan in class or in the field is linked with what you take home when you leave.
The specific goals of AIARE are:
Increase the public awareness of avalanches and avalanche safety.
Provide high quality avalanche education thereby enhancing public awareness and safety.
Provide avalanche instructors with the curriculum, training and tools with which to educate students about the knowledge, methods, and decision making skills necessary to travel in avalanche terrain.
Develop an international network of professional avalanche educators, and provide educational development in the form of instructor training courses and opportunity for continued learning.
