Boat

We offer a variety of boat-based training options from a fully-certified training course from Rescue 3 International, to customized sessions designed to meet your specific needs. Regardless of the boat or the water, our approach will give you the confidence and skills needed to operate your boat in a safe manner. Training can be geared to external propellor, jetboat engines, or any non-motorized watercraft.

A Note on Transport Canada Certifications

Our courses do not replace or include Transport Canada certifications (PCOC or SVOP) required to operate boats for work. You obviously need the relevant Transport Canada certification in order to be compliant, but given that these courses are entirely theoretical (ie. you never get in a boat), we believe you should also have one of our practical, hands-on courses in order to actually learn how to operate a real boat on real water. Confused as to which certification you need? Chances are it's only a PCOC. Click here to find out which Transport Canada certification you need.

TESTIMONIALS

Darren Saare
Port Alberni Search & Rescue

Once again it was great working with Raven Rescue. The course environment was a challenge, since we were in heavy flood conditions, but Craig did a great job of adjusting the curriculum to meet the needs of the participants while maintaining a sufficient level of safety amongst heavy debris, massive whirlpools and somewhat bizarrely... a couple of huge sea lions that strayed up the river to play in the chaos.
