TERT Outdoor Training 2021

Apr 25, 2021   //   by K7JKD   //   Announcements  //  Comments Off on TERT Outdoor Training 2021

When: Saturday 15 May at 0800
Where: Aspen Grove, Theater in the Pines

At present we expect to be wrapping up by 1330. If that means you need a lunch or snack handy, please come prepared. Please plan accordingly to keep yourself comfortable no matter the weather conditions for the duration.

We will share an agenda as the date approaches. A few topics to expect are Landing Zone prep/procedures, recognizing snow dangers and terminology, and medical considerations for hikers who may have previously recovered from COVID-19 and end up suffering unexpected complications on the mountain. We will also have a few hands-on breakout sessions on various topics, including a few light technical items not covered by TERT in recent years.

If you are new with TERT, or unfamiliar with the following topics, please take some time and familiarize yourself with a few videos from the archive prior to the 15th. These topics are all still very relevant for this year.


Medical category:

Both of these presentations are from 2020 training


Radio category:

800 MHz public service radio usage
Using the TERT radio autopatch

In place of indoor training this year we will have a series of occasional online meetups where different topics and skills will be covered.

Thanks for all you do with TERT. We expect a fun day learning and catching up with each of you!

First off, a huge thanks to M10 Marketing (https://m10marketingfirm.com/), who kindly allowed us to use their large space and blazing fast internet (512 up/down!) to livestream the event in 1080p. Also, a thanks to Chase Movement (the private gym next door) for keeping their music and power lifting to a minimum for us!

Most importantly, our training would not have been the success that it was without our amazing presenters. Thanks to each of them as well. We were lucky to have Heidi Vawdrey, Mike Nielson, and Jordan Dye. We appreciate their preparation and timely messages.

We hope you were able to join the training on YouTube live Saturday morning. If not, then you are in luck, and the entire video can still be seen at the same URL as previously shared for the live event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IIalQGyPLg

Please note that attendance is being recorded for credit.  For those who attended Saturday, please complete the quick attendance survey, here: https://bit.ly/TrainingAttendanceSurvey  For those who weren’t able to watch it live, you can still view the recording and complete the survey for credit.  

By popular request, the PowerPoint presentations and other notes shared will be available to download at this link: https://bit.ly/34zaj5c

Lastly, if you haven’t had a chance to sign up for your desired weekends, we usually share the link during the training, and folks who were present got first dibs. There were a few things misconfigured with AG Trailhead signups which have been fixed, opening up several weekends. There are still many a fantastic weekend available, so get what is left for yourself here: https://bit.ly/TERTweekends

Stay tuned for announcements for how we will handle our customary Outdoor Training this year. Thanks for being awesome!

TERT 2020 Training Updates

May 7, 2020   //   by Jared Madsen   //   Announcements  //  Comments Off on TERT 2020 Training Updates

The “Outdoor Training” previously announced for May 16 is now cancelled. We considered planning an event for June, but with unknowns for future group gathering size restrictions, we have opted to turn our focus to a series of online events, some of which will be live, and others will be recorded and available on demand.

We will soon share announcements of virtual or live events on various topics.  Likely the first of these will touch on use of the “TERT Autopatch.” This is a landline phone line connected to a radio transceiver. It is our primary form of communication with Utah County Dispatch. You can learn more about an Autopatch in general from this article, which will have you all set to roll into the live training on this topic: Ham Radio: Autopatch

We also plan to publish a trailhead specific training video, as well as a new member training video in the next month, and we will let you know when those are ready. (That said, if you love making videos, and have time,  experience, and equipment, please contact Jared at 801-330-5049)
Thank you again for the awesome turnout at Indoor Training, held as a virtual event in April. If you missed the event, you can still view it here: TERT “Indoor” Training 2020 – Livestream
