I am from Australia and coming over to New Zealand november to January. I know there are lots of river rescue courses happening but i really need to do a rescue course that is recognised internationally so i can use it back home and employers in Oz will know what it is. I know that rescue 3 runs swiftwater rescue courses that are recognised internationally so i am wondering who runs these courses in NZ and when. Or alternatively are any of the courses run by Sunspots or other companies an international Qual?
