A friend posted on his facebook wall about a re-cert with Dvorak at the end of April on the numbers. He seemed impressed with the training the last time he took it.

I'll be re-certing April 28-30 with Bill Dvorak in Nathrop. Last took the class 3 yrs ago. The man knows his stuff. Cold time of year to be swimming around in The Numbers. This time I won't have to rent a leaky drysuit from him, though.

Steve Harris From Far Flung does courses every spring on the Rio Grande. He is the man for NM, and has been teaching courses for a long time, and taught generations of boaters...

Far Flung Adventures

I need to redo mine this year for sure as well.
BTW- His SWR for River professionals is more directed to boaters and doesn't focus on FD based rescue. Perfect for most paddlers. there is also the full SWRT class as well. necessary details on that webpage. Hope this helps.
Maybe we'll SYOTR

Just saw a flyer from Sawatch Rescue. The courses are May 11-13 in Frisco, May 29-31 on Clear Creek, and June 4-6 in Buena Vista. Rescue 3, ACA, or a Sawatch cert called Swiftwater Rescue for the River Professional (SRRP for $200!) The email address is Hope that helps.
