Do I need OEC if I’m already an EMT-B or higher, WFR, RN, MD?
Yes and no. We offer a challenge class for those with other emergency care certifications, so they may not need to take the full OEC class. However experience has taught us that these certifications may not fully prepare students for the types of first aid skills they are likely to need on the mountain. Students with other certifications who have taken the OEC class have consistently commented that it was a good refresher and the hands-on aspect of the class was valuable. Please discuss this option with us if you desire to challenge the OEC requirement.
