The NCRC Weeklong 2012 Cave Rescue Seminar is taking place on 5/18/2012 5:00 PM CDT – 5/26/2012 1:00 PM CDT at
Mentone, Alabama 35984
In addition to Levels 1, 2 & 3 this year we are offering 2 additional special classes.
Caving and Wilderness First Aid is an elective level that students can choose to take to increase their knowledge of the medical aspects of cave rescue. This level includes a two day Wilderness First Aid course, a half day Psychological First Aid course, and various other medical topics applicable to cave rescue. The rest of the week will be a review of level two rescue techniques with a heavy emphasis on the medical care of the patient during each evolution. You will be with the rest of the group for the walkthrough and the mock. You must have passed level 2 to be eligible for this course. If you have taken level 2 since 2000, you will renew your eligibility to take level 3. There is an additional registration fee for certification and the special text book.
Team Operations and Field Exercises is a weeklong course of hands-on field experience through a variety of rescue scenarios in cave and cliff environments. Emphasizing the core skill set developed in Levels 1 & 2, this course provides cave rescuers an opportunity to acquire more practical problem-solving experience. Successful completion of NCRC Level 2 or 3 within the past four years is a prerequisite.
