Event description

Description

Lost person behavior is the basis of search and rescue missions. This course will present the most recent advances in lost person behavior with Robert Koester’s latest research, and new behavior categories crucial to solving the mystery of where to look for a lost person.

  • Study planning and operational considerations for managing search resources

  • Learn about dozens of missing person category specifics

  • Use actual search mission table-top exercises to apply learning points

Classroom sessions will incorporate table-top exercises. These exercises are designed to allow students to practice and develop efficient deployment strategies for search resources. Participants will go in to details of actual search missions and the profiles of different groups, in addition to hands-on experience with creating reflex tasks and focused investigation questions. From autistic persons, subjects with dementia, despondents and more, a total of 41 different subject categories will be presented. All other supplies will be provided. If you do not have a copy of Robert Koester's Lost Person Behavior book, those will be for sale at the course.
