This two-day course is open to all renewing members who will receive a 50% reimbursement of the registration fee upon completion. This course is highly recommended for all Trip Coordinators. Rocky Mountain Paddling recommends taking both the Canoe Rescue and Swiftwater Courses, but if only one course is possible, the recommendation is to take the Canoe Rescue.

Course Description

The aim of this program is to provide a workshop format for canoeists to learn, develop and most of all practice commonly used river rescue skills. We will be approaching these skills from three typical rescue settings: on shore, in boat, and in the water. This course is for both tandem and solo canoeists. First session is on flatwater and the second will be on a class I river.

This course is limited to eight participants.
