This water rescue course is specifically written and designed for private boaters, kayakers and boating groups! Basic river skills are a prerequisite. Emphasis is on identifying hazards, preventing rescue, and actual rescue techniques for yourself and your group. We encourage a critical approach to rescue senarios with the intent of keeping rescuers safe and providing help quickly and effeciently. This is the class you want as a boater to stay safe and know what to do if something goes wrong. Although this course meets agency Swiftwater Rescue certification requirements for river guides and kayakers; its pace allows for thorough integration of knowledge and practice of the skills that matter. The two day format makes the course more affordable and accessible. This course should be a prerequisite to anyone boating on any river anywhere! The course addresses the river rescue needs of rafters, cat boaters, kayakers, pack rafters, canoeists, riverboarders and SUP paddlers.
