GTE Conference and Rescue Race – schedule and more …

As mentioned, the IRF is holding a Guide Training & Education Conference for all its GTE Instructors and Assessors from the 19 to the 21 April in Großreifling, Austria. Then there is the annual White Water Rescue Race in the same location: 23 – 24 April followed by a Raft and Safety Craft certification Workshop: 25 – 29 April.

A GREAT chance for Instructors and Assessors to get together with others in their industry and share knowledge, experiences and grow networks while having some fun as well!

Due to the quick expansion of the IRF GTE Award Scheme, we need to discuss the challenges this is causing the IRF and how we’re going to resolve it. To be able to maintain equal and high standards globally, the IRF GTE needs to implement some major changes in the way it functions. We therefore invite all Instructors and Assessors to this conference so as to receive information at first hand and be part of the change process, as well as to maintain the integrity and currency of our instructors.
