The Best Rescue Education

Raven Rescue's Technical Rescue Academy is a standout collection of training to springboard participants to the next level of rescue proficiency.  While this annual, month-long Academy is a no-brainer for aspiring emergency responders looking to bolster their credentials, every year we welcome participants from idustrial worksites, municipalities, environmental firms, and exploration companies.  

So why does the Tech Rescue Academy appeal across so many industries and demographics? 

Because this training can't be beat.



Since the 1980s, Raven Rescue has been applying the best in technical rescue to a variety of workplaces. Your circumstances vary... but the techncial rescue industry standard doesn't.  Whether you work as a fire fighter, a driller, a raft guide, a tradesperson, or a geologist, the best in technical rescue excellence can (and should!) be applied to your workplace. Everyone has different reasons for being in a challenging work environment, and everyone deserves the same access to high quality training. 



Taking back-to-back courses is a significant time commitment. That's why we make the most of your money at the Technical Rescue Academy, no matter how long you plan to attend.

When you take two or more courses during the Academy, your rental equipment is free.

When you take one course during the Acadmey, each subsequent course is 15% off.

And if you only attend one course during the Acaedmy, you'll have the opportunity to network with rescue professionals from across Canada, while you receive the best rescue training available in the country.



Raven Rescue courses can hit the road. As the Canadian representatives of Rescue 3 International, Raven Rescue's training is recognized around the globe. Within Canada, we're the leading provider of technical rescue training, and our Raven Medical programs are bringing Canadians the training they need when they need it, where they need it.

We really couldn't have asked for more in a two week period - the amount and quality of training we received was like nothing I've seen before. I have been going on training trips usually twice a month for the last 4 years and this was by far the best I have been to.
