River Safety Courses

NZOIA and Whitewater NZ have defined syllabi for River Rescue Courses designed for whitewater kayaks and open canoes. These training courses are for recreational and professional paddlers to better enable them to safely paddle with their peers, when leading a group, or when providing an instructional or guided experience.  Whitewater NZ manages Water Safety New Zealand subsides for these courses for Whitewater NZ members.
