Thank you for visiting the ASPA Training College Website. It provides a resource for students, instructors and members of the general public who are interested in the training of Ski Patrollers or in Alpine Safety, more generally. We welcome feedback on the design and style of the site, as well as any corrections or content improvements that visitors to the site may value. Please contact me with your feedback or questions at

We take pride in the fact that our courses meet the National Standard and fit into the Australian First Aid Competencies framework. ASPA’s training is linked to specific vocational roles, as well as more generally raising the standard of alpine safety, emergency care, first aid and rescue.

We do always welcome assistance in our endeavours, and are pleased to encourage new volunteers. Should you be interested in becoming a Ski Patroller, the best way is to talk to a patroller from your local resort. They will be able to tell you the exact requirements for your chosen resort.
