(SRS)

Since 1994, RSQNC has been delivering NFPA compliant Swiftwater Rescue Technician Level courses to responders from across the globe. We recognize the lack of advanced level training opportunities available for those responders who have reached the Water Rescue Technician Level.
So, RSQNC has developed a series of custom courses specifically aimed at meeting your agencies needs. These specialized courses are offered to certified responders as “specialist training programs” offered as a series of combined classes based upon the jurisdictional or agency’s specific needs.

This 5- day course Swiftwater Rescue Specialist (SRS) course is only available for certified TR Water and Rope Rescue Technicians compliant with the NFPA 1006 & 1670 standards.

Learn to become proficient in using some of the latest techniques and rigging gear in the industrial, public safety, & wilderness rescue environments. Our RRS course places the student in the environment they are expected to perform. We don’t use warehouses, fire station apparatus floors, or training towers in this course…you can expect to be out in the elements where potential rescues occur. We utilized existing structures or wilderness regions to create a real-time rescue scenario where students learn to become team leaders not just team members.
