Overview

This comprehensive swiftwater course prepares personnel to enter moving water to perform "go" rescues. It emphasizes identifying risks, self-rescue, and the various options for rescuing others, as well as the decision-making process required to chose the most appropriate rescue approach. If you are a first responder or work around moving water (other than guiding), then this is the course for you. This course is NFPA 1006 Compliant.
