PROCESSING WILDERNESS CLUE SITES

THIS IS THE THIRD OF THE TRACKING COURSES FOR SAR FIELD TEAM MEMBERS.

In this 2 day course, students are expected to have knowledge and field experience of the skills taught in the 2 previous courses (TCS & TWE).

PWCS teaches the skills necessary to deduct the subject’s likely physical and mental condition and equipment carried, and to then make search decisions based on these deductions.

Emphasis is placed on identifying, analysing and processing clue sites in wilderness environments such as camp sites, fire sites, washing and water collection points.

This is fundamentally a practical course with students developing skills previously gained and extending those skills through the application of new theory and practice in the field, with the assistance of expert tutors. 

There will be one evening/night exercise and you will be required to camp out on the Saturday night.
