This seminar consists of extensive classroom instruction and fieldwork in all phases of cave rescue including underground environment, vertical rescue, hauling systems, extrication techniques, medical management, communication systems, and the organization and management of cave rescue operations. Basic and advanced course material is presented for students who typically include cavers, land management agency personnel, emergency services personnel, and emergency managers.
The seminar provides approximately 100 hours of instruction over eight days. Its classes are physically strenuous and participants must be in good physical health. Students should be prepared to work in difficult situations, both above and below ground.
NCRC requires participants in its seminars to possess certain skills as prerequisites. Each student must demonstrate his or her ability to ascend (on rope), change over, rappel part way down, tie off their descender, then rappel safely to the ground as part of initial check-in skills. Students must also demonstrate proficiency with the basic knots and hitches used in cave rescue. Students in Levels 2 and 3 will additionally be required to demonstrate retention of key skills learned in previous levels as a prerequisite for participation in the next level. Those lacking the necessary skills will have the option to withdraw from the course or repeat a previous level. Information on specific prerequisites will be provided upon registration, or may be found on the NCRC website. http://www.caves.org/commission/ncrc/national/NCRC_Student_Area/ncrc_student_resources.htm
Participants must review and sign a liability waiver during on-site registration. (Persons under the age of 18 may be permitted to participate in the course, but must contact the registrar prior to registration concerning specific rules and restrictions.)
It is possible we will have aviation resources to deploy a few student hasty teams to some of the mock mission sites on the last day. These arrangement are being made with local air ambulances. If confirmed, you will be asked to complete an on-line aviation safety course (A-100) as a pre-requisite to being able to fly. This link will be posted as soon as this resource is confirmed. This will be an optional participation for the first wave of responders at the mock. Another reason not to miss this year's seminar!!
