Course Aims:

We aim to give rescuers a thorough knowledge of swiftwater rope rescue techniques along with self rescue skills in the vertical environment. We also aim to give rescuers a thorough training in the dangers and problems related with night operations around swiftwater rescues particularly with regard to search and rescue at night.

"Very interesting & worthwhile. I am now much more confident to participate in a technical rescue scenario!"
