River Training Center

The River Management Society’s River Training Center (RTC), established in 2018, supports the effective management and stewardship of North American rivers by providing training for professionals and volunteers who study, protect, and manage them.

Online and in-person training workshops on various river-related topics are targeted towards river managers, river advocates and businesses who conduct work projects in or around rivers.

The RTC also has a special emphasis on Wild and Scenic River (WSR) management for both agency and public audiences. 

Courses are scheduled by contract on an ongoing basis. Open enrollment training opportunities and other training related information can be found on the RMS calendar or at the RMS River Training Center Facebook page.
