River Rescue Course

Rescue 3 New Zealand will host this internationally recognized river rescue certification that is written for professional boaters, by professional boaters. It is a fast-paced, scenario based course designed to develop the ability to choose good actions when a river rescue is necessary.

This course is for river guides, kayakers and outdoors professionals who spend a good portion of their lives on the river in a professional capacity, and therefore have a good base of boating and rescue skills already. This intensive and comprehensive course takes professional certification to a whole new level.

We cover important components like incident size up, risk assessment and management, site control, searching rivers, rope work, casualty management plus all the “bread and butter” skills for professional river people.

The courses we run are small in numbers with no more than 12 students per course with two instructors.
