In Development - Advanced Swiftwater Night Operations


This course is under development and not available yet.

Advanced Swiftwater Night Ops provides skills practice for technician level rescuers, focusing on muscle memory. Technician level rescuers don't have time to always think in an incident, so relying on those instincts will be critical.

So that there is more time to hone muscle memory and practice life-saving skills, online pre-work is important.
