The Swiftwater Rescue Instructor Certification Workshop teaches Instructor Candidates how to instruct all aspects of a SWR course including recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. The course also builds a deep understanding of personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills.

 

The ICW requires understanding of 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. The ICW also focusses on learning how to setting up valuable and realistic scenarios to provide an opportunity for students to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context.

 

Fundamentally, it is expected that participants should possess the paddling skills, technical knowledge, rescue ability, teaching ability, group management, and interpersonal skills commensurate with this level of certification prior to presenting themselves for evaluation as Instructor Candidates at an Instructor Certification Exam (ICE).
