The WRI Training Center, located in Alberton, Montana, plays a central role in many of our courses. The training center’s location is ideal for technical rescue training. Just up the road, 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, Jet Boat and Spill Response Trainings from March through November. If we need to take a break from the river, the prehistoric rocks of the Alberton Gorge are perfect for High/Low Angle Technical Rope Training, and 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.
“As the Water Rescue Team Leader for Missoula County Search and Rescue, WRI has been not only a great training resource but also a great partner on several of our swiftwater rescue and recoveries. Cody, Mike and WRI’s very capable and knowledgeable team of instructors teach from the perspective of having experienced the very missions that we are tasked with completing.”
