Flood Rescue Boat Operator

The Flood Rescue Boat Operator training course is a 3-day course which incorporates all elements of the 2-day Rescue Boat Operator and adds flood rescue capability.

An ideal course for any emergency service personnel

It is ideal for any emergency service personnel who may attend flood events with boats for low level casualty and victim recovery from a flood or slow-moving water environment. Also, suitable for those wishing to provide boat cover during working operations in a water environment e.g. bridge work, building, construction.

 

It can also be run as a 1-day module for those who already hold the Rescue Boat Operator qualification.

 

It can also be run as a 2-day module for those who already hold an International Certificate of Competence or equivalent national course, e.g. RYA powerboating level 2.
