I am offering a 2 day Swiftwater Rescue course at the end of May/beginning of June, in the Vail valley, or very near by. I have been advertising through a couple of front range clubs, but it is open to everyone.
I am just waiting to hear back on which dates people prefer, and enrollment. Either June 7-8th, or May 31st/June 1st. If you're interested, let me know, and let me know which weekend works best for you. I am going to choose the weekend that works for the participants.
This is an American Canoe Association (ACA) 2-day Basic Swiftwater Rescue Course, and is designed to teach both river rescue techniques and safe river-running practices in all river craft. It will be catered to the paddling interests and boat types of the participants. My emphasis is on judgment and managing river rescue situations, as well as river rescue techniques that can be performed with a minimum of equipment. Rescuing swimmers and pinned boats will be covered as well. The cost will be $215.
I am an ACA certified level 5 Advanced Swiftwater Rescue instructor. If interested, please email or call. Look forward to hearing from you! Cheers,
