Lowland Search Technician
This course covers elements 2 & 6 of the ALSAR competencies framework for becoming an operational Lowland Search Technician.
During the weekend you will learn:-
- Searcher Preparedness
- Search Techniques
- Detection & Recognition Skills
- Dealing with Clues
- Crime Scenes and Evidence
- Missing Person Behaviour
You'll also take part in a simulated search exercise.
The course is highly practical with most of the weekend being spent in the extensive grounds of Easthampstead Park Conference Centre learning search skills and putting these into action.
The course costs £30 which is payable in advance or at the start of the course.
The course is residential for those who require it but does not include catering. You will need to bring your own food but you can also partake of the many excellent fast food establishments that surround the Bracknell/Wokingham area.
