Employment & Training
Want to join our crew?
It's an amazing summer job, and Wild Blue Yonder has excellent training for guides serious about being professional, taking care of people and running technical rivers. On shore, we run a tight ship, with the variety of trips and packages resulting in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. In the office, we have a systemized, modern booking and operational system, with a comprehensive marketing program. If you're interested in marketing or tourism management, you'll gain some great experience!
SWIFTWATER RESCUE COURSE: Every spring in Grande Cache, Wild Blue Yonder Rafting offers a 16-hour Swiftwater Rescue Course (Level I & II) through the Royal Lifesaving Society. Although this is mandatory for our guides to take, the course is also open to the public. Level I teaches river dynamics, safety and self-rescue techniques. Level II includes advanced skills and rescue techniques for assisting others; it's recommended for white-water kayakers, rescue teams and guides. It's a good course for Search & Rescue organizations, and we have also trained Canadian Rangers. Here's an article written by a Ranger who took the course in 2014. REGISTER FOR THIS COURSE.
