Our Managing Search Operations Class is our most advanced Search Management class.

This course is based on curriculum and materials developed by ERI, Intl.

Focus is on

wilderness incidents. This course is designed for those who have the responsibility to plan and prepare for search operations in any emergency environment, be it wilderness, rural, or urban. This is not a 'hands-on' skills course; it is management oriented. Participants will learn how to plan for, organize and manage a search effort for missing persons using incident management (command) techniques. Emphasis is on state-of-the-art methods, e.g. probability theory, lost person behavior studies, clue awareness, search detection probabilities and research, use of computers as a planning tool, hasty search techniques, and more!

Participants will also learn about various types of rescue environments and the special difficulties of each. The emphasis is on the resources needed to do the job right. The expected outcome is that students be able to properly manage search and rescue (emergency) operations through the work of others, (using the right resources). Small group discussion and tabletop map exercises are used throughout this course.
