RESCUE3™ Whitewater Rescue Technician WRT-PRO, 3 Days


The internationally recognized Whitewater Rescue Technician WRT course is designed for professional river users who require a rescue capability in a whitewater environment, eg raft/canyoning guides or safety kayakers. In Switzerland, it is mandatory for all raft/canyoning guides to complete a water rescue course in order to get certified by the SOA . 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 Whitewater Rescue Technician (WRT).
The certificate is valid for 3 years. Recertification courses are CHF 100 cheaper.
