There are Rescue 3 certified Instructors throughout Europe both within the European Fire & Rescue Service, Mountain and water rescue teams and other outdoor professional establishments. Additionally there are a number of training centres and individuals who offer Rescue 3 courses on a commercial basis in most European countries.
All our courses are internationally recognised and form the base training for many emergency services, whitewater professionals and Rescue teams. Rescue 3 courses are an intensive mix of classroom and river-based sessions that equip Rescue teams and outdoor professionals with the knowledge to safeguard themselves and their team members whilst involved in water or rope based rescues, and there are various levels of training available from Awareness to Operations and Technician up to Instructor and Management.
