ABOUT THIS COURSE:

We designed this REC-I swiftwater safety course primarily for recreational river users who wish to gain experience around moving water. SSI frames the REC-I course around participants’ desires for training and guide novice students through the process of risk management and decision making in a swiftwater setting. We have tailored this course for recreational enthusiasts with varied experience levels.

We frame this course around participants’ desires for training, taking everyone from novice to advanced students through the process of risk management and decision making in a swiftwater setting. We will not expand on physics and technical load distribution concepts, but we do typically have time to run through some very basic mechanical advantage concepts to frame the idea. We don’t get into advanced level rigging concepts in either of the REC-I or PRO-I courses, but direct our efforts at the fundamental skills necessary to be competent and thoughtful in a variety of river rescue settings. The REC-I swiftwater safety course is suitable for a wide range of skill-sets and a must have course for those wishing to advance skills.
