The WRI Training Center, located in Alberton, Montana, plays a central role in many of our swift water rescue classes and inland oil spill response courses. The training center’s location is ideal for swiftwater rescue, fastwater spill response and technical rescue training. Located right on the Clark Fork River near Missoula, we have Class I-IV whitewater within walking distance from our classroom and shop. Students roll out of camp, into the classroom, and onto the river in no time at all. The Clark Fork River plays host to our Swiftwater Rescue Training, Jet Boat and Inland Spill Response Trainings from March through November. The prehistoric rocks and cliffs of the Alberton Gorge are perfect for High/Low Angle Technical Rope Training. When the river freezes and the snow is falling, we turn our sights on Ice Rescue training.
We truly feel fortunate to have such a unique gift as the Clark Fork River valley to call home. And it is even more exciting to share our passion for the river and this place with our students. Call today to sign up or schedule a course at the Training Center.
“Having been involved in the practice and instruction of Wilderness Medicine for over 20 years, I can say without a doubt that the Whitewater Rescue Institute courses in Safety and Swift Water Rescue Technician are absolute essentials for any water/outdoor enthusiast. Whitewater Rescue Institute’s extreme professionalism and extensive knowledge will provide you the essential skills you need to safely enjoy water sports and potentially prevent those unexpected tragedies. This was one of the most beneficial courses I have ever taken.”
