Swiftwater Rescue Technician - Swimmer

We are the only Rescue 3 preferred training provider, offering training courses in Germany and Austria, in both English and German languages.

Rescue 3 International was founded in 1979 after a California search and rescue team nearly lost one of its own during a water rescue. Nearly 40 years later their mission remains the same: to provide flood, water, and rope rescue training to individuals and organizations with an emphasis on ways to keep rescuers from becoming victims.

As a result, Rescue 3 has risen to become the recognized leader in water and flood rescue, training over 300,000 students throughout the US and 50 foreign countries. Known for their dynamic curriculum and utilizing state of the art techniques. Rescue 3 is constantly developing new and innovative rescue techniques, improving on old techniques, and working with manufacturers to develop equipment to meet rescuers needs.

For all Rescue 3 courses each student is assigned a certification number so that they can access their training record at any time in the future, for employment or legal reasons. This number is on their skill sheet (training record) that lists the specific skills and knowledge taught, the relevant NFPA standard, and whether the student performed or observed each skill. This becomes an invaluable training record that should be kept in a personnel file. Each skill sheet is entered into a database maintained by Rescue 3 International. The training record can be accessed at any time with just a phone call or e-mail by simply quoting the individual certification number or person’s name. This is one of the many ways Rescue 3's approach is unmatched by other training organizations.

Rescue 3's courses have been independently audited and found to be compliant with the NFPA 1670 standard for technical rescue in high risk environments including swiftwater, ice and rope rescue.
