River Rescue, Wilderness Medicine, and Skills Courses for Outdoor Professionals and Enthusiasts

Taking river rescue, wilderness medicine, and skills training for boaters to a new level, Wet Planet provides fast-paced, scenario-based courses designed to develop the ability to choose good actions and respond appropriately when emergencies arise in the wilderness setting. Students will receive internationally recognized certification through either Rescue 3 International or Sierra Rescue International (depending on course) for all Wet Planet river rescue or wilderness first-aid courses.

We provide a variety of different courses to meet the specific needs of different river users, from kayakers just learning the sport, to professional river guides, to agency search and rescue and fire personnel.
