This course is designed for those seeking true adventure and comprehensive instruction, as well as summer employment opportunities as river guides for the upcoming season.
Most important is that these courses are fun, teach amazing leadership skills in a hands-on outdoor river setting. While experiencing some of the best whitewater the west has to offer.
The course is also perfect for anyone not wanting to enter a commercial river guide boating setting but rather hone in on their own river skills. We will cover paddle boating and master the art running oars, reading water, packing for multi-day trips.
If you are an aspiring river guide, a whitewater river guide school is a critical first step and may provide an opportunity for you to get your foot in the door with a well-established company.
Our whitewater guide & river rescue schools provide our students with the most comprehensive hands-on exposure to the world of river guiding.
Our guides and instructors are a wonderful eclectic compilation of highly educated and skilled boaters with diverse backgrounds; from Class V river guides to nature photographers, EMT’s, river rescue instructors, ski-patrollers and storywriters.
Noahs schools are a truly hands on outdoor adventure experience. People retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they write & 80% of what they do! We focus our energy on having our students experience as much as possible hands-on rather than just being shown & told. This makes for a much more effective learning experience and really helps our students retain what they have learned. These guide schools encompass not only the fundamental skills of reading whitewater and maneuvering boats, they also cover knot tying, raft rigging, signals, safety put-in talks, dealing with clients, class V safety techniques, equipment maintenance and repair, river conservation, local history, being in the wilderness and the finer points of creating safe, enjoyable river trips.
