MAINE RIVER GUIDE TRAINING COURSE
The Three Rivers Whitewater Guide Training Course is an eight-day program with very high standards. Guide Training is an experience that our professional guide staff holds near and dear to our hearts.
This course is designed to make all dedicated participants proficient in all the necessary skills to be a safe, knowledgeable, and entertaining Registered Maine Guide. These areas of training include boatmanship, river geography, hydrology, rescue techniques, guest service, risk management, equipment care, outdoor trip logistics, and more.
All trainees must have current Basic First Aid and CPR or higher certification previous to the start of training. Every year Three Rivers hosts a Basic First Aid Course which is available for all trainees. Whitewater Guide training is physically and mentally demanding. Rafting trainees and guides have responsibilities to themselves and others while training. Whitewater boating has inherent risks and hazards. All trainees will be required to sign a release of liability that indemnifies Three Rivers Whitewater inc. from any claim. Trainees assume all risks related with training. For this year’s course the fee is $300 which is due 30 days prior to the start of training. Our newest payment option for the training class is a train for trade option. This requires a $200 deposit and two days guiding unpaid once you obtain your guide’s license. Transmission of this application does not guarantee you a spot in this program. All applicants may be required to attend an interview before acceptance.
