Summer Raft Guides are now in need for both our NH and ME rivers. We are looking for a few quality candidates to join our team of licensed whitewater raft guides. Candidates must be at least 18 or older by June 1st, 2020. Guides must be professional in appearance and be drug and drama free. Reliable transportation to get to and from work is also a must. Candidates should have their CPR and First Aid certificate (or be willing to get it). This job is VERY physically and psychologically demanding, candidates must be in good physical condition and able to act professionally when under mental and physical stress. Our rafting season runs every weekend primarily from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Holidays are when we are the busiest; the ideal candidate will be available to work during these peak times. We offer a pre-season licensing program for those who are interested in becoming a guide but do not currently have their license. The training we conduct is designed to prepare you to be competent in all areas of whitewater guiding and get your professional Maine whitewater guide license. Areas explored are: whitewater boating techniques, river rescue, river hydrology and geology, trip logistics, customer service and more! Expect the training to mimic the physical and psychological demands of the job. Training dates are currently to be determined. Our  training program includes: transportation from our raft base to the river(s) being used for training, licensed guides providing instruction, safety gear and study materials. We do offer new guides the option to either pay the training fee upfront OR train for trade (ie: work unpaid time on the river equivalent to value of training). Additional cost not included in the training fee for new guides to consider: camping fees when in Maine at the Kennebec river for 5 days (approximately $15 per day), food, CPR & First Aid certification if not already certified, Maine testing fee and license ($189) and guide gear for the season. Please remember, this is a PROFESSIONAL LICENSE that requires time and investment and is good for years to come. For more information please e-mail us at info@dogslednh.com
