The basic Swiftwater Awareness Course. An introduction to the swift water phenomenon and its potential dangers- this course is completed on-line, not on site.
This 8 hour course teaches ‘first on scene’ units how to react to an incident. These students will be trained in extraction and self-rescue but will have minimum water contact.
