OEC 6 Online offers easier learning and teaching experience for members of the National Ski Patrol. Offering video lectures for all chapters taught by an award-winning instructor with over 30 years of experience in prehospital emergency education, OEC 6 Online can help provide a more standardized program.
have been using Patroller Academy's OEC lecture series and skill videos to compliment
our OEC Course instruction for 3 years. As busy working adults and young adults
in school, we were looking for a solution to maximize our time in the classroom
to be able to focus on skill practice and to provide flexibility that is
desired by today’s candidates and instructors. It was especially helpful during
COVID as we already had been using the online system and were able to
seamlessly proceed with the OEC course with adjustments to our in-person
The system is easy to use as both an instructor and as a student. Having access to these videos and quizzes allows students to go back and review. Leveraging this system, students are well prepared for both the written exam and hands on practical exam. As an instructor, I can assure my candidates are keeping up with lectures and quizzes and get an understanding of where the class is at and where we may need to put more focus. It also allows one to address students who are falling behind and work with them to identify next steps forward to assure their success.
Moreover, Jay is very responsive to feedback and consistently puts his heart and soul into improving the lectures and videos. Jay is also very timely and helpful with any technical issues and adjusting the course for our schedule and expectations. Patroller Academy has vast resources to support multiple learning styles that goes well beyond any resources I have attempted to use for OEC instruction. I highly recommend Patroller Academy to help assure the success of your OEC class. "

This course made it a breeze to study my way through OEC training, even with a busy summer schedule! The built-in practice quizzes and online lecture resources let me make use of my time anywhere that the internet could be found.
The lectures were interesting and delightfully sassy. They were also great for focusing on what information from each chapter was most important to study and retain. The examples, stories, and jokes make the lectures enjoyable and kept distractions and sleepiness at bay.
I've used this course over the last number of years, he does an excellent job of explaining concepts and has the program set up to provide the greatest success for the students!
Participation in this class is limited to members and candidates of the National Ski Patrol, and as such all candidates must enroll in the NSP and a NSP Course Number to receive the national accreditation exam. We are providing a much more standardized, comprehensive educational program for Ski, Bike and adventure resorts throughout the country.
All hands on classes are coordinated by a local Outdoor Emergency Care Instructor to provide students ample opportunity to put the skills into hands on practice.
We do charge $100 per student to offset the cost of hosting services and product development. This is in addition to NSP dues and NSP class fees. Students are given access until December 31st of the following year to ensure that they will have access to the videos to help them through their first OEC refresher.
We have been running this online program at many ski hills around the country for the last 5 years and have a near 100% success rate (there were two students that never watched the videos or read the book. . . guess what happened.)
If you would like a video conference demo, please contact me at jay @ oec6online.com. I can show you how our entire program can help you and your students.
I look forward to working with you to make your program successful.
