Inland waterways are statistically one of the most dangerous aquatic environments with the Murray and Yarra rivers being the first and third most deadly in Australia. In response to the high level of drowning incidents at this type of environment, this course was developed in partnership with RLSSA as a component of the National Respect the River campaign.

The course is ideal for teachers, supervisors and support staff associated with activities taking place at inland waterway locations. It is also recommended for inland industry representatives such as boating, kayaking and canoeing as well as those involved in camps and aquatic tour operations.
