This 40 hour custom course designed specifically for students of The Survival University will cover search and rescue (SAR), and some tactical aspects of tracking.

The physical aspect of tracking are identical for all groups, the only difference being what each does when they catch up to their quarry. SAR personnel work to get the missing person or persons back to safety. The training received can be used for whatever professional or leisure activity you are training for, be it law enforcement, military or just trying to find your kids in the woods during a good game of hide-and-seek .

​Training to prepare SAR members for urban, rural and night tracking under “ideal” conditions. This course is for the SAR or law enforcement person that has the desire to become a tracker for the purpose of Search & Rescue.

It is an intensive course with 4 hours of classroom and 36+ hours in the field. Based on Jack Kearney’s “Tracking: A Blueprint for Learning How” and developed with his consent, this course teaches all the basics.  The class will be held in the mountains just outside of Cripple Creek Colorado.  After class, students are welcome to stay at our established camp and kick their feet up by the campfire. Bring your tent or camper and spend the evenings with us!
