- 7-Day Deschutes River Rafting Guide Training - March 18th thru March 25th
4-Weekend Trainings - April 1-2, April 8-9, April 22-23, April 29-30
We have trained river guides for 38 years and every year we strive to improve our program and build upon our successes. In other words, you will be the recipient of a very comprehensive training program --- 15 days to learn the entire range of skills required to be a professional river guide, or just steer your own craft on Class III-IV water.
- River Guide Training • Rescue Techniques • Expedition Travel • Knots • Become a Professional River Guide • and More
Our training begins on the Deschutes River in north central Oregon. Besides being an excellent way to immerse newcomers to guiding, the 7-day river trip is an excellent opportunity for our instructors to work with each student on a personal basis. The final 4 weekends follow the 7-day trip and include a variety of rivers throughout the Cascades. From April Fools through the final weekend of April, we will be exploring several rivers with completely different personalities in order to give you a well-rounded perspective.
Orion provides all meals, dry bags, necessary river gear (life jackets, throw bags, safety lines, etc.), instructors and shelter during the Deschutes portion of the training.
Orion is hiring guides now for the 2017 season.
