Practice the ancient skill of tracking. This course gets in to the practices of tracking humans that cannot be read and learned from a book… that cannot be learned in a classroom. Experience in tracking is required, though not necessarily from this school.
- Apply signcutting and tracking tactics to large scale scenarios
- Refine track and sign interpretation including direction of travel, aging, etc.
- Construct an accurate and descriptive after action report of tracking tasks
Professionally presented classroom sessions will be followed by the majority of the time spent outside putting the concepts you learn to use. We will have a good time while exploring and practicing methodical signcutting tactics, more night tracking and large scale missing person scenarios. This is not an entry level class, and students should have prior tracking training, though not necessarily from this school. While this course is oriented to search/rescue, military and law enforcement professionals, it is also designed for individuals that want to round out tracking skills.
Most of the class will be spent outside, and some at night, so bring appropriate clothing. Lodging and meals not provided, but local camping areas and hotel information will be provided upon request or registration.
