SVELAV PRO 1 

Basisutbildning för yrkesbruk


This course provides basic avalanche training for outdoor work in mountain environments. Emphasis is placed on recognising avalanche terrain and managing avalanche risk from a workplace perspective. It includes examination components for avalanche terrain and companion rescue. The training consists of both theoretical sessions and practical outdoor activities. Topics include avalanche and weather forecasts, basic snowpack observations and snow stability assessments. We will also practise advanced avalanche rescue and how to report avalanche occurrences and accidents. Note that this course requires training in first aid equivalent to at least three days, including CPR and hypothermia. Participants should also have practised transceiver search practice before the course.
