Whitewater Guide & Rec Rafter Training

I just want to preface this with the fact that I do not gain anything financial or otherwise by endorsing this - I took the course last year and it was an outstanding experience and for the number of training days offered also an outstanding value for what you pay (even better for you American folks and the crappy Canadian dollar where presently $1 USD = $1.38 CDN).
The Dates are fast approaching and I know Braden is getting emails from potential course attendees as we speak. If you are looking to become a raft guide (BC, Canada has really strong raft guide standards which is why this course is 12 days of raft guide training plus 2 days of SRT) and/or you want to step up your game as a recreational rafter, this is an excellent course. Note the 2 day SRT course may be on different dates than those posted below, Braden can clarify this for you if you contact him.

My post, with video, of last years course: Highlights from a Whitewater guide training course I took

There are 2 course dates presently offered for 2016:
Course#1 - May 2 to May 15
Course#2 - May 30 to June 13

Am I missing something? $850 canadian for 12 days including meals and lodging? Is the license transferrable to the US? I don't want to be a guide but sounds like fun and a good way to lwarn.

Did it include all gear like drysuits etc...,?
