Hello Colleagues, it’s February of 2020 and we would like to share with you where we currently have instructors who are qualified by the International Rescue Instructors Association.

The following nations are supporting select instructors.

  1. Canada
  2. United States
  3. Norway
  4. Chile

As you are aware we are updating our training outreach so we can support additional instructor and program needs worldwide.

Primarily our legacy instructors are from North America and Chile. By adding these new regions we are modernizing our outreach for the further development of your potential.

Our goals are to be operating in the following countries once we complete our IRIA Assessor Training Program translations.

  1. Asia
  2. Australia
  3. Europe
  4. South America

Currently, we do not have any instructors in the Asian or Australian regions. We are working on our translations to other languages, cultures and country of origin rules. It’s a big job to ensure the authenticity and accuracy of the IRIA Standards Matrix(r) transfers well across the board.

We know when this important update is completed that we will be able to fulfill those areas with professional and competent instructor candidate and program reviews.

Thanks for believing in the IRIA.

Our founders were first generation water rescue specialists, who wrote the book; because they worked the water, the river, the flood and they dared to share.

Thank you for all the contacts we have been receiving, your interest is a great motivator for us!
