Located near Missoula, Montana on the Clark Fork River, WRI Training Center provides the ideal location for comprehensive swiftwater spill response training. We have also conducted trainings throughout the U.S.: from the Mississippi to the Columbia, we have the experience to train your team. We offer a range of classes that emphasize responder safety and risk management, while providing hands-on training with skills needed to quickly deploy boom in fast water. Participants learn to recognize and avoid fastwater hazards, equipment, booming strategies, recovery systems, rigging onshore anchors, establishing mid-stream attachment points, creating deflection boom, containment boom, cascading chevrons, line crossings, boom vanes, jet boat operations and much more.
“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!”
