The course is focused on wilderness searches. It consists of classroom lessons and practical, tabletop exercises. Course participants learn about planning an extended search using Probability of Success (POS). The tools are mathematically based and not for the faint of heart; they help quantify the uncertainties of the search problem to allow consistent application throughout a mission. In addition to that, the course covers pre-plan development, legal aspects, Civil Air Patrol National Cell Phone Forensics Team, Cospas-Sarsat System, and federal SAR roles and responsibilities.
