Words from the Instructor to the participants:
 
“These 5 days will include practical and theoretical preparation for the IRF exam, and an IRF exam on the last day.
It will be a class 2/3 assessment, depending on the level of the participants.
 
We will be on the river daily, practicing ferryglides, eddy in-out, throwbaging, swimming rapids, raft flipping and various scenarios.
 
HIGHLIGHT of the course: we will have a 2 days multiday river trip.
You will learn how to plan, prepare, time the trip, rig the rafts, tackle the events of the day.
 
As you will not be able to learn everything you need to know for the exam within this time, you need to be prepared before arriving at this course.
 
You need:
Basic boat handling skills
Different paddle strokes needed by the guide, efficient turning of the raft
Ferries
Catching eddies
Throw bag practice
Knots (figure of 8, butterfly, prusik, clove hitch, munter (italian) hitch, overhand knot)
Flip
Physical fitness to be a river guide/flip a raft/climb into the raft
 
The river Tara and, if we are lucky Piva river too is amazing and offers all the challenges we need to help you become better raft guides.
Spending five days here will give you the time to learn the best thinking patterns that in turn will make you take better decisions while guiding on the river, all this while enjoying one of the best rivers of Europe.”
