Rafting Track

This track is for anyone who wants to lead trips travelling on the water in rafts.

To become certified at each level, you must complete and record all pre-requisites, courses, and experiences listed under that level. Record your courses and experiences on Summit, and then submit a request for level completion to receive your certification. See 'Who Can Lead What' for a description of what trips each level can lead.
