2. From the classroom, OTH (On-The-Hill) training begins from January to March.
If you are a skier or snowboarder…. each candidate is screened by a European Division examiner to assess the level of skiing/boarding proficiency. Basic ski/snowboard level ability is the standard measure of skiing/snowboarding expectations for running a patient-loaded rescue sled.
