Swiftwater Rescue Courses in Colorado

Swiftwater Rescue Courses in Golden, and Buena Vista.
April, May, June, 2013
Elias Leadership and Rescue

Still some spaces available!

All participants of whitewater activities are encouraged to take a swiftwater rescue class. All paddling ability levels welcome.

- Information about the 2 day Swiftwater Rescue Course: a completely unique curriculum offered by Elias Leadership and Rescue and endorsed by the American Canoe Association (ACA). This 2-day Swiftwater Rescue Course 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. This workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as strainers, rescue vest applications, entrapments, and pins, also are practiced. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context. The cost is $215.

All courses taught by an ACA certified level 5 Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Instructor.

Space is limited to 10 per class.
