Thanks for the many kind words and recommendations. As always, great students make for great courses!
The days of Rescue 3 being viewed as 'agency specific' are long gone. Rescue 3 continues to set the standard with new techniques and a progressive curriculum including the new River Rescue Certifications (RRC and RRC-Pro).
Taking river rescue training for boaters to a new level, the 2-day River Rescue Certification (RRC) course is a hands-on, scenario-based rescue course designed specifically for whitewater boaters: kayakers, rafters, cat boaters, SUP paddlers, river boarders, and canoers. Students will receive internationally recognized certification through Rescue 3 International.
Additionally, the 3-day River Rescue Certification for the Professional (RRC-Pro) is a fast-paced, scenario-based rescue course designed to develop the ability to choose good actions when a river rescue is necessary. This hands-on and physical course focuses on quick reaction time and thorough understanding of options and resources.
This curriculum has been designed for individuals who spend a good portion of their lives on whitewater rivers in a professional capacity (specifically river guides and kayak instructors), or paddlers who already have a solid base of boating and basic rescue skills and are interested in working on the river in a professional capacity in the future.
Fire and SAR personnel should still take the NFPA-compliant Swiftwater Rescue Technician (SRT-1) course.
For those that are interested, Sawatch Rescue is offering a Rescue 3 International
SRT-1 / WRT course June 18-20 on the Arkansas River in Buena Vista.
