Rescue Technician: Surface Water Refresher

A course designed to provide hands on training that will allow students to stay up to date in the field of surface water rescue. The course will consist primarily of outside skills practice of the pertinent job performance requirements of the NFPA 1006, Standard for Rescue Technician Professional Qualifications.

A course that will review the student in: water hydrology, preplanning water sites, safety, self-rescue, boat operations, in-water/shore-based rescues, rope techniques, highline rescues, and command of water incidents. A good understanding of rope techniques and knots is highly recommended, but not a requirement.
