Wader safety course
Wader safety courses for recreational users and workplace training.
Our wader safety training courses are one day in duration. The course covers water safety and rescue skills for people that play or work around the water. It is a popular course for recreationists with safety in mind and workplaces looking to ensure they meet their health and safety obligations.
Where do you run this course?
We deliver this course on the Waimakariri River just north of Christchurch, 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from the city centre.
Our instructors can travel all over NZ to deliver water safety programs for clubs and organizations. If you’re interested in getting a course delivered outside of the Christchurch area, give our team a call or email today.
When is the next wader safety course?
Wader and water safety training courses run on request, and we recommend running your course in the warmer months of summer between October and March. We can run wader and water safety courses any time of year; however, we find participants get more out of the course in summer. To book your course get in touch with one of our friendly team today.
