There is an avy class at the U. It does not get you certified, but you have the same training equivalent as a level 2 certification.
It's a short class, the instructor is definitely a stereotypical "mountain men" but the he knew his shit.
It's pretty fun too, but because the class is short you have to do a lot of semi heavy reading about the science behind avalanches.
