EMTs and Paramedics
EMTs, advanced EMTs, and paramedics are eligible to receive an Outdoor Emergency Care technician card, to join a patrol, by successfully completing the OEC Modified Challenge course. The OEC Modified Challenge course fulfills requirements that mountains or patrols have for working patrollers to carry an OEC credential.
The OEC Modified Challenge is offered through patrols. EMTs, advanced EMTs and paramedics who complete the Modified Challenge are required to complete an annual refresher course to keep their OEC credential current as a member of a patrol.
If you are interested, contact a local patrol to learn more their OEC course offerings.
