Find out what IRGT participant Finn Henry thought of the training and what he went on to do after completing Live the Adventure’s International River Guide Training course:

Finnian Henry – IRGT Graduate says:

“I had the privilege of doing the International River Guide Training course with Gerry Moffatt and Anthony Eddies Davis. I can’t say enough about the way this course was run; their professionalism, local knowledge, experience and everything else down to their humour and their music taste made this course the most worthwhile two weeks of my life. Further than just the skills and qualifications I gained from doing the course, I found being around Gerry and Ant inspiring. As well as delivering internationally recognised course curriculum, they went above and beyond what was advertised for the course sharing their vast experience and passing invaluable lessons of work ethic, respect for the environment and of the importance of giving back to the industry.”

Following Finn’s training with us he went onto work for white water outfitter GRG Adventure Kayaking in Nepal.

Another graduate from the 2013 course Jaime S-H – went onto work with Nepalese company – Adrenaline Rush, Nepal.   Here’s what they had to say about him:

“We were so happy to work with Jaime here at Adrenaline Rush Nepal.   Jaime is a fantastic kayaker and a budding river guide. His incredibly easy going nature and great work ethic made him fit right in with us here in Nepal.   He is well liked by everyone here and we can’t say enough good things about his personality.  He is an strong confident safety kayaker and in his second year working with us he return as a safety kayaker/photographer.   He has worked for us for 2 seasons and we can’t wait until he comes back again. “

Live the Adventure’s IRGT course produced a very high standard of Guides some of which are now working as successful guides in the US, UK, Nepal, Bhutan, India, Canada, Europe, Zambia, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand.
