If you boat whitewater or work on a rescue or emergency team, you will find the skills presented in our Swiftwater Rescue Courses to be invaluable. The certification classes, sanctioned by Rescue Three International, are usually offered during the early summer months. The classroom portion of the training addresses subjects such as hydrology and swiftwater hazards. The remainder of the training involves rescue activities in flowing water. The 2 1/2-day Whitewater Rescue Technician (WRT) course is designed to meet the industry standards for people who, for work or recreational purposes, find themselves on or around the river such as professional guides, private boaters, and fish and game personnel. Fire and rescue personnel should take the 2 1/2-day NFPA-compliant (1670 Standard) Swiftwater Rescue Technician One (SRT1) course. The courses are held concurrently. Course costs include instruction, a level one manual, and lunch on the river. Upon successful completion of the class, you will receive a certificate of completion and a Rescue Three I.D. card.
