RESCUE3™ Swiftwater Rescue Technician SRT, 4 Days


For many years, the internationally recognized Swiftwater Rescue Technician course has been seen as the benchmark training course for swiftwater and flood rescue teams. This training course is intended for personnel who may be required to carry out rescues in a swiftwater and flood environment, including emergency services personnel and mountain rescue teams. It also aims at new canyoning guides, since it is mandatory to have completed a white water rescue course before starting the SOA canyoning courses. In the course, we learn the basics of rescue theory and emergency management, fast and precise risk- and site analysis and a safe and efficient application of basic river rescue technics.
The course ends with an assessment and the internationally recognised certificate of the Swiftwater Rescue Technician (SRT).
The certificate is valid for 3 years. Recertification courses are CHF 100 cheaper.
