After an introduction to the hazards posed by a frozen lake or river and how to mitigate them, you'll get kitted out in a drysuit, PFD, and all sorts of specialised gear. We'll have you practicing a variety of self rescue techniques, buddy-rescue techniques, ice travel techniques, and get you thinking about how you can incorporate safer work practices into your job.
