H2O Idaho is proud to offer a course on the basics of whitewater safety and more. This is a ACA Level 4 Swiftwater Rescue Course that will cover the essentials of accident prevention and management, hazard recognition, self-rescue, boat-based rescue, whitewater swimming and basic rope techniques. We will also learn more advanced skills including advanced rope rescue techniques, unpinning and extrication, entrapment rescues and the use of swiftwater rescue vests.
This two day course will take place in an outdoor classroom setting with hands-on learning scenarios in whitewater situations with the entire second day spent on the river. This course is physically demanding with participants needing to be comfortable swimming in Class II+ whitewater rapids.
