Becoming a Prospective Member
RMRG's Sunday field practices (and occasional Wednesday night practices) are only open to members and explicitly approved prospective members. In order to participate in field practices and apply for membership, prospective members must first complete the Prospective Training Program (PTP).
The PTP is a series of meetings and weekend trainings that provide new recruits with the background and skills to begin the process towards full membership. After completing the PTP, it takes Prospective Members (PM's) anywhere from six to eighteen months of regular attendance at meetings and practices before being ready to submit a membership application. Election to membership is determined by a majority vote of active members. Completion of the PTP is absolutely not a guarantee of election to membership.
Although not required, nearly all of our members live in Boulder County.

Prospective Training Program (PTP)
The Fall 2016 PTP has just completed. In each of the last four years we have had a training over 2 weekends in October/November. The PTP schedule for next year will likely be decided in early March 2017. If you would like to receive any information about future trainings, please email us at membership@RockyMountainRescue.org so that we have your contact details and so that we can send you a link to a survey about your background and interests.
Membership Policy (PDF) - describes the process and requirements for applying. You are responsible for knowing the requirements of a Support member and the application process according to Membership Policy.
Membership Application (PDF) - This is the final step towards membership. Once you have completed the PTP and have met the requirements in the membership policy document above, this is the application you submit to be considered for membership.
