Acquire the knowledge and self-assurance required for Swiftwater rescues. The industry’s best dedication to superior education is shown by NOC. We go above and above the standards in our courses to ensure that students are best prepared to become guides, teachers, and proficient in swiftwater situations. Our ACA-certified instructors have years of expertise.


These courses, which are offered at NOC’s renowned Nantahala River campus, are perfect for experienced paddlers, first responders, and river guides.

With an emphasis on the contemporary river runner, we have selected more sophisticated and advanced techniques that are considered essential for today’s paddlers, all while fulfilling and surpassing the requirements of the  ACA Level 4 Swiftwater Rescue Skills Course. Instructors from NOC go above and above by instructing participants on how to handle hypothetical circumstances involving river rescues that a paddler could encounter using methods carried out with the least amount of equipment.
