Host a Course
Thank you for your interest in hosting a WRI course. At WRI, we strive to provide the highest quality education possible. We hope to provide you and your agency with not only the most up- to-date techniques in swift water rescue, but also real, hands-on experience in performing rescues. By teaching through scenarios, participants get a chance to discover personal strengths and weaknesses and a chance to see what works and what does not in swiftwater rescue.
Hosting a WRI course is simple.
Option #1: In House Training
For most locations, our class minimum is 6 participants. If your organization has at least 6 participants and would like to customize the training to your specific needs, then “in-house” training is a great option.
Option #2: Open Course
If you do not have 6 participants, or you are interested in working with the community at large, then this is the option for you. Simply host the course and with your help, we will advertise the course and fill the remaining spots. Our cut-off is 25. If the course has 12 participants, one member of your agency goes for free. If the course has over 15 participants, 2 members of your agency go for free.
Because we believe in safety on the river, we are proud to teach courses that are compliant to the National Fire Protection Agency standards 1670.
