Raft Guides Course (BCROA)

8:30am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday, April 24 - 29

This six day course is designed for students who are interested in becoming commercial raft guides, or who are just interested in learning about white water rafting. This is an intensive course delivered over six full days and will include late afternoon/early evening sessions and lots of scenario based learning. Additional pre-course rafting days are also offered and included in the cost so you are better prepared before the official course starts. Participants should have some experience with white water kayaking or rafting prior to the course. The majority of the course is conducted outdoors, and students should be prepared for variable weather conditions. This program can include certification with the BC River Outfitters Association (BCROA). Most of the course will be taught on the Nanaimo River, but depending on water levels we could potentially be on the Cowichan or even travel up to and spend some time on the Gold River.
