Join Lead Instructor Dana Rowsey and other MISR cadre for our second course in preparedness: "The Fundamentals of Tracking". In this two-day course, students will participate in classroom lectures and field exercises which are designed to teach the fundamentals of tracking. This training is the same training used to teach WV Law Enforcement personnel.
In this course students will receive training on who uses tracking, why tracking is used and why it is a valuable skill for police, search and rescue (SAR) and other first responders and is a key skill to put in the lay individual's self-reliance tool box. Additionally, students will learn tracking tools and their uses, how to draw and document tracks and key definitions and terminology. Students will also be trained on how time and the environment can affect tracks, using light and sun angles to aid in tracking, what tracking teams are and how to operate as a member of said team and students will learn about pressure releases.
