RAFT GUIDE COURSE 22. -26. June
Our raft guide course is designed to train guides to our standards. It may also be appropriate for the recreational paddler who is looking to improve their personal skills. This course offers an excellent learning experience for people wanting to learn the basics of raft guiding through to the most experienced guides. Our goal is to prepare and equip you with the necessary skills and confidence to negotiate a raft and clients/buddies down a river. The course will be instructed by our most experienced and knowledgeable guides.
To be a solid raft guide requires many experiences from rivers and various situations. We do our best to give you as much as possible in this course. You can expect a full 5 days of very intense activity.
The course consists of the following:
- River hydrology and dynamics
- Maneuvering Rafts
- River Hazards
- Scouting and Running Rapids
- Orientation and Safety Talk topics given to guests
- Trip Organization and Trip Leader Responsibility
- River Rescue and Emergency Procedures
- Guest relations
Requirements for participants:
- competent swimmer
- physically fit
- 18 years or older
Wetsuit, water shoes, helmet, throw bags and life jacket (PFD).
YOU SHOULD BRING
Two pairs of wool or super-underwear to wear underneath the wetsuit on cool days. Wool socks, towel. Bring your own river equipment (drysuit, river shoes, helmet, PFD, etc.) if you have it. It is always much better to use a gear which you are used to on a river. Personal equipment needs to be maintained to an acceptable standard. All safety equipment (PFD) must be CE approved.
Participants can stay in our wooden lavvo with beds and use all facilities of Dagali Fjellpark.
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
Min. 4 and max. 8
We strive for a personal approach to each participant.
After the course, you will get our diploma with the course content and personal reference from our head guide.
This course is meant for beginners and we prepare participants for trainee positions in rafting companies. After this is up to you to get the experience and hours on the river to become an experienced raft guide.
The course will be held by Vojtech Hejtmanek that is the owner and founder Dagali Fjellpark. Vojtech has years of experience as a kayaker and raft guide. He has been guiding on the Numedalslågen since 2010 and has more than 15 Years of intensive paddling experience around the world.
