This class is by far our most popular, and most informative class. The Whitewater Rescue Technician class is a dynamic curriculum specifically written for private boaters, kayakers, non-profit organizations, and river professionals taking a river rescue course for the first time. Basic river skills are a prerequisite. The emphasis is on identifying hazards and on the rescue of both self and others. Thinking through rescues is also emphasized. The course addresses the river rescue needs of rafters, cat boaters, kayakers, pack rafters, canoeists, riverboarders and SUP paddlers. Minimum age is 18, this is a 20-hour class.
