Yellowstone River.

Learn river rescue near Yellowstone Park. These 20 hour Swiftwater Rescue Courses consist of 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 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 SRT is compliant to NFPA standards 1670 is certified through the Whitewater Rescue Institute.


You will need a full wetsuit or drysuit; a pair of neoprene booties and gloves, a helmet (w/skull cap or beanie/hat); and a lifejacket.
