Outdoor Emergency Care® is the NSP’s training program for patrollers and others in the recreation community who deal with emergency situations. This nationally recognized program is designed to help you manage the toughest emergencies, in all seasons. Outdoor Emergency Care is a training program that is tailored to the nonurban rescuer. Over the years, OEC has evolved to address the needs of other outdoor-based emergency care providers too, including wilderness medical technicians, river rafting and mountaineering guides, members of search and rescue groups, mountain bike patrollers, and parks and recreation employees. Today, OEC is considered the standard of training for emergency care in the outdoor environment and is recognized by resorts and recreational facilities in all 50 states.

Become an OEC Instructor

An OEC instructor is a current NSP member who has successfully completed the OEC course, the Instructor Development course and the mentoring program.

An OEC Instructor is selected after assisting in teaching a minimum of two courses under the supervision of an appointed mentor and submitting an instructor application to the OEC Administrator

You are invited to become an OEC Instructor within the ESR and join our excellent group of OEC Instructors. Nothing is more important to the success of our NSP's education programs than our core group of hard-working instructors who deliver our programs. If you would like to become an OEC instructor please talk to your Patrol Coordinator or an OEC Instructor you know and they can assist you, or write me a note and I will walk you through the process
