Swift Water Rescue
This course teaches the skills necessary to handle emergencies and perform rescues in a whitewater environment that are essential for all paddlers, from the professional raft guide to the private kayaker. The course begins with classroom instruction, where students learn the basics of rescue gear and preparation, rescue organization, victim stabilization, boat retrieval and rope systems. The second part of the class is spent on the water, where skills such as strong swimmer rescues, shallow water diving and wading, strainer management and victim stabilization will be taught. The third part is spent practicing and refining rescue skills during a series of realistic river scenarios.
