We are always looking for new members to join our team!

Anyone who is 19+ years old and eager to provide emergency medical support outdoors will thrive in the CSP. As a member of the CSP, you must be able to handle all of the terrain and seasonal conditions you would encounter at your local park, favourite camping area or Alpine and Nordic recreation area.

From the moment you join the CSP, you will be learning and interacting in a team environment. Our internationally certified training will teach you about emergency medical care, radio communication, avalanche control, lift evacuation, skiing and snowboarding improvements, toboggan handling, and an unending list of other interesting topics.
