From NSP's Certified Program page: The Certified Program has six core components examining physical endurance, knowledge, and experience, all requiring individual study and travel. The six core components are: Avalanche, Outdoor Emergency Care, Outdoor Risk Management, Rope Rescue, Skiing and Riding, Toboggan Handling. The specifics of each component can be found below in a document titled “ Certified Program Operations Manual”. This member designed and approved standard is without compromise, where excellence is mandatory.
