From Zero To Hero

“From Zero to Hero” is a one-day to multi-day course that emphasizes all the skills necessary to run a whitewater river trip safely. We use the most forgiving craft for whitewater – inflatable kayaks – in order to concentrate on safety issues, trip management and accident prevention.

Boat handling, river reading as well as swiftwater rescue are the core skills that will be covered on this course. Paddling skills will be covered progressively in order to build confidence and judgment.

For courses which are 3 days or longer, time will be spent on the theoretical and practical requirements for the River Rescue Certification, a certified course by Rescue 3 International, the recognized world leader for swiftwater rescue training, with over 150,000 students throughout the US and 32 countries around the world.

Rescue 3 Certification

A DYNAMIC water rescue course specifically written and designed for private boaters, kayakers and non-profit organizations!  Basic river skills are a prerequisite! Emphasis is on identifying hazards and on RESCUE itself; both of self and others.  Thinking through rescues is also emphasized.

This is the class you want as a boater to stay safe and know what to do if something goes wrong.  Although this course meets agency Swiftwater Rescue certification requirements for river guides and kayakers; its pace allows for thorough integration of knowledge and practice of the skills that matter.

The two day format makes the course more affordable and accessible.  This course should be a prerequisite to anyone boating on any river anywhere!  The course addresses the river rescue needs of rafters, cat boaters, kayakers, pack rafters, canoeists, riverboarders and SUP paddlers.

ECO-X Adventure Run

The Eco-X is Malaysia’s first and oldest adventure race series which began in 2001. Look out for details here on our 17th installment of the Eco-X adventure run, tentatively scheduled towards end of 2016.

Our philosophy that the last person on the race course is as important as the first place winner ensures that no one is left out of having an enjoyable and personally satisfying challenge. A race like the Eco-X is perfect for escaping from city life, whether you’re racing to win as a hard-core athlete, or pushing your limits for a satisfying personal challenge, or just out for a fun adventure with your friends.

Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness Advanced First Aid is comprehensive medical training designed for remote professionals or wilderness leaders who venture into remote and challenging environments. Wilderness Medicine differs significantly from standard first aid courses and other training that are oriented toward urban environments. This course teaches how to manage medical emergencies when hospitals and rescue services may not be available for an extensive time period. We prepare students for emergency situations that involve prolonged patient care, severe environments, and improvised equipment.
