Development of training materials for Austrian and German avalanche commissions department “people”.
Under the direction of geosphere Austria, new training materials for avalanche commissions are being developed on the basis of the “Social Capacity” theory. In addition to snow and avalanche knowledge, the commissions will now also receive targeted training in the areas of organizational, communication and emotional competencies. The elaborated documents deal with topics of group interaction, leadership and junior staff development as well as risk communication and the design of structured decision-making processes. Last but not least, the documents focus on stress management after stressful assignments.
