Blackfoot & Clark Fork Rivers

The Whitewater Rescue Technician Course is an intensive 20-24 hour class with a half day of classroom instruction followed by two days developing and practicing skills on the river. While the initial emphasis is safety & self-rescue, the class offers an in-depth look at reading water, recognizing and avoiding hazards, quick rescue techniques, riverboarding, boat-based rescues, dealing with boat wraps and entrapments, technical rescue systems, and a variety of practical scenarios. We analyze footage of actual river rescues in the classroom and progress from a solid foundation of rescue skills and practice into rescue scenarios on the river. The Swiftwater Rescue Technician class is challenging, fun and tailored to the student’s needs. A manual, test, patch, I.D. card, and certification are included. The WRT is compliant to NFPA standards 1670 is certified through the Whitewater Rescue Institute.
