Student Water Safety & Rescue Courses

Rescue 3 has a long history in water rescue, developing the original Swiftwater Rescue Technician courses in the USA over 30 years ago. Since then the course portfolio has broadened and strengthened.

The courses offered by Rescue 3 Europe are at the cutting edge of technical water rescue. They are suitable for a wide range of people and organisations, whether you have a few people who need training how to effectively use a lifejacket, are a recreational river user and wish to improve your rescue skills, are a member of the emergency services who requires flood or water safety training or are a manager responsible for deploying emergency service personnel into flooded areas. Rescue 3 Europe has the courses that will fit your needs, and experienced instructors to deliver them.
