This course is designed to meet the current industry standards for people that work or play on or around the river, such as professional guides, recreational boaters, and Fish and Game personnel. Students will benefit from this intensive, hands-on course, using simple equipment and techniques to solve rescue scenarios that might occur on the river. Objectives emphasize developing self-rescue skills, utilizing existing water dynamics, and handling hazards and obstacles. Presented in a 3 day format (9-5 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday), this course takes the basic core essentials from the Swiftwater Rescue Technician course and applies them to the real world river environment.
