Welcome to the Avalanche Skills Training level 1 (AST 1) class session for skiers and snowboarders.
You will see a menu of the course content below with 11 different lessons. Most contain some text, but mainly different videos where we go over power point style learning. Be sure to make the videos full screen and click on all of the videos and links that are shown.
At the end of each lesson is a short quiz to help with retention. This is not a pass or fail course, but we want you to retain as much of the information as possible for when you complete the AST 1 field day as well as for your own riding in the mountains. This is also why there is some repetition in this online course. We want the points to stick.
To start the course, please click on Lesson 1 – Course Introduction below. You will then see the course menu on the left hand side of your screen. It should be pretty straight forward navigating through the course content from there.
At the end of each topic, be sure to click “Mark Complete” to move on to the next topic.
After all of the topics have been completed in a lesson, you need to click the quiz and complete it before moving on to the next lesson. When in doubt, scroll down to find it.
Take your time, do a little at a time. If you exit the course and want to come back to it, you can login with your user name and password from any page on the HangfireTraining.com website at the very top of the page.
Enjoy the course and we look forward to seeing you on the field day.
-Ryan and the Hangfire Team
