New for 2022!!
Swiftwater Rescue Specialist Series (SRS) Courses

What is the Swiftwater / Flood Rescue Specialist Series ?

Since 1994, RSQNC has been delivering Swiftwater Rescue Technician Level courses to entry level 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 “specialty programs” offered as a series of combined classes based upon the jurisdictional or agency’s specific needs.

The SRS (Swiftwater Rescue Specialist) Series includes:

  • Swiftwater Rescue Task Force Deployment and Response
  • Rope Rigging Operations
  • Night Operations Considerations
  • Advanced Rescue Swimmer Operations
  • Real-Time Wide Area Search Operations
  • NFPA Swiftwater Guide Training and Boat Operator Techniques
  • Swiftwater Raft Guide School
  • Specialized Boat Rigging & Deployment Techniques
  • Watercraft Search Operations (Surface & Swiftwater Environments)
  • Specialized Watercraft Operations
  • Real-Time Scenario-Based Training Day and Night Operations.
  • SAR Topo Search Based Management Operations
  • and more...

Who Can Attend?

This course is only available for certified TR Water and Rope Rescue Technicians compliant with the NFPA 1006 & 1670 standards. This course is a scenario-based training program so minimal skills sets are taught but expanded upon from previous certification training.

Pre-requisites include:

TR-Water Rescue Technician or SRT I & SRT Advanced

TR-Rope Rescue Technician

EMT; Medical Responder; Paramedic; or higher

Boat Operator/Boat Crew (Preferred)
