EastTex CERT has organized a tracking course geared toward search and rescue operations and taught by a world-renown Fernando Moreira and has extended the invitation to Allen CERT. The class runs Jun 14th through June 16th.
From EastTex CERT:
The class is being sponsored by the Texas Survival School and is a 2-and-a-half day Man Tracking class featuring Fernando Moreira. The class will be held behind City Hall in Lucas and then the field work will take place around Trinity Trail on Lavon. We have reserved the camp ground that the Raptor Center has for the weekend for all who want to stay on site. The class is $200 per student. Anyone interested can reach out to Ray McKee with any questions and registration can be completed at www.texassurvivalschool.com on the Class Summary & Registration menu. This should be an awesome class. Fernando really knows his stuff and we have been working for quite some time to get him to come to the area to do a class for all of our SAR and Law Enforcement friends.
More on the Course
Tracking is not a lost art, but rather and underutilized modern science. Let us show you how. Together we can make a difference. Fernando Moreira’s Professional Tracking Services provides expert training in visual tracking, consultations and deployment in the field across the United States and world-wide.
We customize each class to take into account your personal and the terrain they will encounter to best perform skill sets learned when on the job as a volunteer, contractor, law enforcement officer or while serving in the military.
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 class room and 16 hours in the field.
