National Agreement :
The ANPSP is federally accredited to provide first aid training in France.
Patroller Education Program :
Our Patroller Education Program trains members for various conditions in which they are required to perform, thoroughly preparing them for almost any situation which may arise on or off the slopes.
For an individual to become a patroller, he/she must complete a course covering an extensive list of first aid skills. Additionally, other components such as accident scene management, chair lift evacuation, rescue, communications, avalanche and search and rescue are also part of our program. This course is delivered primarily using a ‘hands on’ approach, however, some classroom and self-directed learning is also involved.
