Hello all,

I am currently researching river related safety training in the western USA. Preferably within a days drive of Idaho or Utah as my gear is in Utah and my home will hopefully be Idaho this summer.

I'd like to get a good river rescue and wilderness first aid course Between March 15 and April 30. I also plan to get the required CPR, and a CDL.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a reputable program? Isn't there some training done in Idaho each spring? I'm open to Washington, Oregon, NorCal, Idaho, Utah, Colorado.


As you can see, the training will be good for me:)
