This course is being held in conjunction with the 2024 Redside Rendezvous.

The PRO-I is designed as the entry-level course on the PRO track for those requiring certification for any type of employment. This is open to recreational river users wishing to train on the pro track, but is a much faster pace of training designed for professional guides. You must enter this course with intermediate to advanced knowledge on river flow mechanics, river swimming, river running fundamentals and a sound understanding of river vocabulary terms. The popular REC-I courses are suitable for a large range of experience levels from beginner to advanced, and taught at a more digestible speed for newer river runners. If you don’t have prior swiftwater training, you should consider a REC-I course if you don’t require certification for employment. A practical examination will be given on morning one and all students must be proficient in order to advance in the course.

Space is limited to 16 students and will be taught by SSI lead instructor, Nicky Gallo. Class fills up fast, so register early!
