AIARE Pro Avalanche Course
AIARE Pro 2 Starting at $2000 per person
AIARE Pro 1: The Pro 1 is a 5-day course, and the first of the Professional courses. It is similar to the traditional AIARE 2 course, with the addition of an evaluation. The Pro 1 course is a pass or fail course and is designed to train and certify workers new to the avalanche industry (educators, patrollers, guides, forecasters). We will cover skills essential to the workplace including conducting weather, snow and avalanche observations, making an assessment of basic hazard and risk factors, participation in team meetings, succinctly communicating observations in the field, and applying basic safe travel protocols in avalanche terrain.
AIARE Pro 2: The Pro 2 course is an advanced certification course for professional avalanche practitioners, professional guides, and patrollers. The course is 6 days long, has a maximum student to instructor ratio of 5:1, and is a pass/fail course. Students must have a Pro 1 certificate, a AAA-recognized Avalanche Rescue course, a minimum of 40 days of operational experience over two winter seasons, and have a letter of reference from a supervisor.
