Event notes
This is a two day course: 15 & 16 September, 2018.

Course Overview:
The course teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards. It reviews self-rescue techniques from Rescue-1 and develops rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. 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 when appropriate. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context.

Essential Eligibility Criteria:
In order to participate in an AC Skills Course, each participant must satisfy the following essential eligibility criteria:

• Be able to independently participate in all individual skills and activities listed in the course outline while also maintaining an appropriate and safe body position
