The 2011 season of Ice Rescue Training programs conducted by Lifesaving Resources will kick off on January 22. We will be conducting 3 Technician level courses, along with our annual International Ice Rescue Train-the-Trainer Academy.

At the same time, our over 300 authorized instructors will be conducting Ice Rescue Awareness, Operations, and Technician level courses throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada.

The Ice Rescue Technician level course is a comprehensive and fast-paced 8-hour training program consisting of 3-hours classroom, and 5-hours of on/through-the-ice practical evolutions.
