Our Rescue Boat Operations (PSO) course trains first responders and individuals for boat-based technical rescue incidents. This course meets and exceeds NFPA 1006 (2021), NFPA 2500 (2022), and FEMA Boat Operator & Swiftwater/Flood SAR Boat Technician Standards.

This course has been curated by our team of experts and includes classroom and practical hands-on training in boat selection, boat handling, rescue craft/boat rigging, emergency boat procedures, swiftwater tactics, boat rescue techniques, a “night ops” experience, and more.
