The River Rescuer Pro is designed for professional river guides or those interested in guiding. The scenarios practiced and discussed in this class are pulled directly from common river issues that guides encounter. The primary focus of the course is prevention and developing situational awareness that will help to minimize risks and shorten response times. The RRC-Pro also has a night time search component. The course includes a certification and card as a River Rescuer through Rescue 3 International, the River Rescuer workbook and a form documenting the participants performed skills and qualifications. (Great to have if you are intending to apply to work with an outfitter)
