River Guide School Description:
Learn to Row & Guide Rafts. This five-day raft guide training is designed for people wanting to lead river trips or become professional raft guides. We focus on safety, reading water, and guiding paddle rafts through Class II & III whitewater. Topics include trip preparation, safety talks, equipment, rigging, boat handling, communications, paddle commands, and rescue techniques. Our Raft Guide School combines river instruction with a certified Whitewater Rescue Technician class the first three days. Day one begins with an introduction to equipment, risk management, reading water and boat rigging. After that we suit up and run the Alberton Gorge for an introduction to paddle rafting. Learn to swim rapids, rescue swimmers and recover from a flipped raft. Days two and three are typically on the Blackfoot River. You’ll learn quick rescues, throw bags, self-rescue, and rescue swimming. On days four and five you’ll guide whitewater raft trips on the Blackfoot River and Alberton Gorge. The course is hosted at the Alberton Gorge Ranch and includes a Whitewater Rescue Technician certification and certificate of completion. No experience necessary.
