If you are an organisation that has employees who spend time working in or around the water, it is important they are suitably trained and hold relevant qualifications. For key organisations such as Fire and Rescue services whose staff may be called upon at any time to attend a wide range of incidents involving the water, it is essential team members are well versed and rehearsed in how to deal with an often developing situation.

Developed by Rescue 3, the internationally recognised Swiftwater Rescue training scheme follows DEFRA module guidelines and covers a range of scenarios for those using boats or ropework to safely manage an on-water incident. 


North Wales is one of the top locations in the UK for Swiftwater Rescue training, due to the nature of the Menai Strait which provides a wide range of different moving water conditions, and the river locations of Snowdonia.

All our courses are offered on a residential basis. If our current dates are unsuitable, and you have a group of 3 or more who require a particular training course, please contact bookings on 0300 300 3113, as it may be possible to arrange an alternative date. Note – The SFRBO dates are aligned to spring tides to ensure there is plenty of fast moving water on which to train. Therefore it may be more difficult to find an alternative date for this course in particular.
