Advanced Wilderness Navigation

PurposeIn our Introduction Navigation course, we introduced all of the topics needed to successfully navigate in wilderness (roadless) areas. In this advanced course, the skills are reinforced through an extensive, two-day field problem. Because navigation in the SAR environment is more than just getting from Point A to Point B, this exercise incorporates all aspects of search and rescue learned up to this point, and gives the student the opportunity to practice these skills inside a simulated SAR environment.

Format: This course is entirely field-oriented. (16-24 field hours) Skills emphasized: Cross-country navigation; point location; following briefing instructions; describing locations; practice of Type I, II & III searches, practice medical proficiency, practice tracking, practice technical rope rescue skills.

Prerequisites: Outdoor SkillsIntroduction to Wilderness NavigationStandard First Aid and CPRSAR TacticsTechnical Rescue Systems 

Note: This course is a good "dress rehearsal" and skills review for the Skills Evaluation Weekend.
