The Motorized AIARE Avalanche Rescue Course is a one-day stand-alone course that is intended to be taken on a regular basis in order to keep abreast of best practices in rescue techniques and gear. New participants will learn the basics of companion rescue while returning participants will expand their skill set with advanced topics and realistic scenario practice to improve their skills. This rescue course contains material specific to motorized users, that is not covered in our traditional Avalanche Rescue Course.

Each participant will have the opportunity to receive professional coaching on their rescue skills, and receive a rescue card acknowledging the completion date.

AIARE Avalanche rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2 and Pro 1 courses. AIARE recommends that all backcountry travelers keep their skills current by taking an Avalanche Rescue course and receiving a rescue card at least every other year.
