This course teaches rescue techniques with regard to limited resources in a wilderness setting. This three
day-24hr. course meets the needs of professional river guides as well as USFS and BLM employees.
Recreational river runners or anyone finding themselves working on or near moving water will gain
valuable techniques in dealing with water hazards and emergencies. This intensive 24 hour class generally
has two to three hours of on-land instruction each morning prior to entering the water. Course focus is on
wilderness-based rescues with limited rescue resources, personnel and communication. This course is
designed to meet varying student skill levels.

Self rescue and hazard avoidance and recognition are key components in this swift water course. We teach technical rope systems, and then systematically remove hardware to increase the demand on the student to problem solve with limited gear and resources. These Missoula swift water rescue and guide classes will be offered on back to back weekends.
