Training

TERT has two training days each spring – Outdoor Training and Indoor Training.

Those wishing to become members of the  Timpanogos Emergency Response Team must complete two of the all-day training sessions in order to become a team member.  After they are a member, they must attend at least one of the two training days to maintain membership.

The training is in the spring and is presented by current team members and invited guests. There is no cost for these courses, but the candidate must provide their own transportation, some equipment and food.

The Indoor Training is usually held at the UVRMC Hospital in Provo.  We have a full day of TERT instruction and medical training.  The hours may be used for re-certification. Those attending receive excellent medical training in a variety of areas.

The Outdoor Training class is held Aspen Grove and emphasizes team protocols, backpacking skills, basic rope and ice axe techniques, radio operation (for licensed amateur radio operators), medical, and helicopter protocol.

Members are encouraged to seek out training opportunities in the community to enhance their skills.  Note “Related Sites” for training opportunities.
