Dear Interested River Runner,
Thank you for your query about our 2017 Official Colorado State River Guide Certification Course. Our Guide Certification Class will begin at 9:00 A.M. on Monday, May 15th, 2017 and run through Friday, May 26th. We have been training top quality river guides since 1977. We limit the class size to ensure a great learning environment and plenty of personal attention. We will be on the river all day, every day, and cover all aspects of river running and commercial guiding. The course will cover all topics required by the State of Colorado for commercial guides including:
This is a physical course, running class I through IV rivers. You will be required to carry rafts, flip boats, swim in the river, and be generally active. We will provide all necessary equipment including P.F.D.’s, wetsuits, helmets, etc. We will provide transportation and take care of all shuttles. If you have personal boating gear, bring it with you and we will determine its suitability. You will need shorts, shoes suitable for rafting, and a lunch everyday. Dry clothes for the end of the day are also a must.
While completing our course does not guarantee employment, we will be hiring several more guides for the upcoming season. Our company’s goal is to provide the best customer safety and enjoyment possible, so we are looking for service oriented individuals.
