Emergency Response

Swiftwater & Flatwater

The level of training you need depends on how close you get to the water in the course of your work.  We offer a full range of NFPA compliant water rescue courses to prepare you for any work environment.

The standard training levels are:

1.  Awareness (more than 10’ from water)
2.  Operations (within 10’ of water)
3.  Technician (in or on water)

For more information on choosing the best course for you, read our FAQ on Technical Rescue Training Levels.  Read our FAQ about the definition of moving water to learn whether you work in flatwater, or swiftwater.

TESTIMONIALS

Iain MacInnis, Firefighter/Paramedic
Strathcona County Fire Fighter Paramedics

As a career Firefighter/Paramedic, I attend various training and continuing education courses often. Both Ron and Garth stand out not only as experts in their field, but exceptional adult educators as well. They did an excellent job on my SRT1 course presenting the material while gauging the needs of the class.
