2021 Course Dates TBA

** I’ve decided to cancel all instructor certification courses for the 2020 season due to Covid-19. At this time I don’t feel that it’s possible to ensure the health and safety of participants given the hands-on rescues that need to be taught and demonstrated for certification. I’m committed to leading high quality trainings and look forward to being back in 2021!***
