The Whitewater Rescue Institute offers our students a variety of swiftwater/flood rescue courses. All of our courses are taught by instructors who know the dynamics of swift water. While each instructor brings his own skill set to the course, all have spent decades working and playing on the river. They are truly river enthusiasts. Our courses range from the one day Awareness level to the 20 hour Technician level. We strive to provide the highest quality scenario-based training available to give our students the skills they need to stay safe in the challenge environment of swiftwater. If you don’t find what you are looking for here, please feel free to contact us, we can tailor a course to your needs.
“Whether you are a river-rookie or an experienced boater, WRI tailors their classes to what you need to learn in a fun and challenging environment. Their scenario based teaching approach creates an electric learning atmosphere where you feel like you are in actual river rescue situations. I would recommend them to anybody!”
