Raft Guide Courses . Splash White Water Rafting run several Raft Guide Training courses each year in Scotland and also in Morocco. These are IRF ‘International Rafting Federation’ approved courses for qualification for raft guides. The course includes Swift Water Rescue Certification and if required First Aid Qualification
With this qualification, you can obtain paid work as a guide in Scotland and in over 30 international countries. Also join a longer course with the 2nd week in Morocco involving multi-day river guiding skills.
