The Mountain Institute

Are you and your team ready? At The Mountain Institute, we specialize in training teams to be light, fast, and efficient. If something goes wrong on the fireline, you need to be able to analyze the terrain, grab the appropriate gear you need, get in and get out.

There is a time and a place for traditional, heavy roadside rescue equipment. We are working in a wilderness environment on REMS deployments. We are here to give you and your team the tools you need.

Workshops and gap analysis for your team in low-angle rescue, high-angle rescue, and mountain rescue.

ProQuals are available through The Mtn Institute under the ITRA Organization for technicians looking to have professional recognition for their skillset and knowledge of technical rescue.  An ITRA ProQual is a third-party written and skills-based test to independently assess rope rescue candidates.


Certification vs Certificate?

There are some important differences between having an independent third-party certification, a certificate of completion, and a “certification” that was given by an instructor who just taught you a skill. Click here to learn more about ITRA qualification.
