Class III/IV Guide School - April 2-3 & 8-10, 2016

For everyone, beginner guides welcome (download flyer)

This is the next step towards a deeper understanding of the river, paddle raft navigation on more challenging whitewater, knowing proper river safety, rescue and etiquette, managing people, and becoming a Class IV whitewater raft guide for MRA on the Kern River.  Instruction for the first weekend will be on Class I, II, & III whitewater.  The second weekend (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday) will focus on Class IV whitewater.  You’ll learn advanced river skills to guide friends, family, and/or commercial guests down Class III/IV rivers confidently, while learning how to minimize the risks.

  • Meals are NOT included during the 1st weekend of the course, but meals ARE included on the 2nd weekend.  All participate in cooking for the group as part of your training and experience.
  • You will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
  • During the Regular Season this school can be taken in 5 straight days.
