Course Details

The AIARE PRO 1 Bridge Course & Exam provides training and certification for the avalanche worker who took the AIARE 2 (prior to winter 2017/18) as a step in their professional avalanche education, and is ready to challenge the PRO 1 exam.

The PRO 1 Bridge course assumes the applicant is an experienced backcountry rider and working professional, with field practice applying the AIARE Trip Plan, the Communication Checklist, Avalanches and Observations Reference , and the Review the Day checklists found in the AIARE (blue) field book.

The course spans two full days, from 7:30-6:00.curso_aiare_2016-19r

On day one students will be introduced to the evaluation criteria for the course, participate in field sessions and complete the written exam and terrain photo exam. Day two is largely the field evaluation.

Upon successful completion of the course and achieving a passing grade the student will obtain an AIARE PRO 1 certificate.
