Raft Guide Training

RVA Paddlesports will soon host our Raft Guide Training for candidates interested in summer employment as a Raft Guide. Trainees should be open to working outside in a challenging and unique environment requiring both solid physical and interpersonal skills. Raft Guide Training is often the first step for people who end up enjoying a life long passion of whitewater. Trainees who attend all dates will be invited to continue their training throughout the winter and spring, with weekly practice trips down the river.

To apply, please fill out the Raft Guide Training Application, and send both the application and a cover letter to the RVA Paddlesports warehouse or to [email protected]. Additional information on specific qualifications and expectations can be found on our employment page. Applications are due by March 1, 2020. Training is open to applicants ages 16 and up. Completion of Raft Guide Training and the accompanying River Rescue Certification is mandatory for employment as a Raft Guide.
