Program Details
OAP Swiftwater Rescue Course - $360.00

The Swiftwater Rescue workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Fundamental and more advanced techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as strainers, rescue vest applications, entrapments, and pins, also are practiced. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context.
This course is for those looking to expand their whitewater skill set, and who have some experience paddling whitewater. Comfort in moving water and swimming ability is a must.

This Swiftwater Rescue course is open to the VCU community as well as the general public.


Prices:
Students: $275
Faculty, Staff & Members: $330
Non Members: $360

Course information will be emailed to participants the week prior to the course. Please email outdoors@vcu.edu with other questions.
