Our Instructors

As first responders, outdoor or medical professionals, Raven Rescue Instructors are constantly using the skills they teach and are up-to-date on the latest developments in rescue and rescue medicine theory and practice. In addition, all our instructors all have great personalities, natural teaching abilities and a dedication to customer service. This ensures your training experience is enjoyable as well as educational.

Technical Rescue

Our technical rescue instructors are all highly operational, which means they regularly work in high-risk environments including swiftwater and surface ice and utilize technical rope systems and wilderness medical skills on a regular basis. This means that training is conducted in a safe environment. Also, our technical rescue instructors are gifted teachers and know how to break skills down into small, logical progressions that are easy to learn and remember. 

Wilderness Medical

Our wilderness medical instructors are all medical rescue professionals that actively work in remote or unconventional settings but are also experienced educators, researchers and advocates for healthcare in difficult conditions. What’s more, Wilderness Medical Associates’ rigorous training process ensures that our instructors can take complex medical subjects and break them down into simple, understandable lessons that you will remember when it counts.

AMAZING course. The surface ice safety training was the best course I have ever taken. I liked that there was some simple first aid and hypothermia components included in the course. The instructor, Frank, was awesome. He was easy to talk to, answered questions quickly but didn’t assume answers. He got back to us regarding a question asked that he had to research the answer for. Frank used the time well, and was adaptive to the class needs and skill levels. The course helped me get over my fear of ice/falling through, especially since I gained the nerve to do a polar dip afterwards. It helped me understand the formation and melting pattern of ice and ice weaknesses. The equipment used was simple and easy. The textbook and field guide are great references, and the field guide is simple and easy to understand and read. Overall 10/10 for the course and instructor.
