Sierra Rescue

Swiftwater Rescue Technician Unit 1

The SRT curriculum is specifically designed for fire fighters, rescue teams and professional rescuers who need the best swiftwater training available! The course is NFPA compliant and meets the required elements for personnel reaching toward Technician Level Certification. The SRT Unit 1 is the first step toward "Technician Level" proficiency that can be attained once the SRT-1, TRR-TL and SRT-A have been completed. The course is very active in the water and is suitable for rescuers with no water rescue experience. The course also offers experienced rescuers the opportunity to develop their skills and push their personal limits on and off the water with realistic rescue scenarios, self-rescue challenges, and lots of hands-on interactive rescues and experiences.


Swiftwater Rescue Technician Advanced

This course is the third class needed for personnel wanting to meet the requirements of the NFPA 1670 Standard and the NFPA 1006 Standard at the Technician Level for water. This course takes the student who has completed Swiftwater Rescue Technician Unit 1 (SRTU1) and Technical Rope Rescue Technician level (TRR-TL) beyond the emphasis of self-rescue and further concentrates on rescue in hard to get to areas and more difficult swiftwater situations. This is done by integrating the SRTU1 techniques into more difficult technical swiftwater rescue situations.


Swiftwater Rescue Technician Combo

This Six Day course combines the curricula of the SRT Unit 1 and SRT-A into one class. The SRT Unit 1 teaches the fundamental rescue skills for swiftwater and the SRT- Advanced brings together advanced swiftwater techniques and rope rescue techniques in a swiftwater environment. This course also includes a night search and rescue operation in a river environment and lots more!! It is a very active and fun course for students who are up for the challenge! The TRR-TL training is recommended before you take the SRT-A, but if you are solid with your rope skills, students have successfully taken the SRT-A without the technical rope background.
