Phase I

Whether you are here to complete a SAR training requirement or want to give your wilderness know-how a boost, these resources will equip each student with basic knowledge of outdoor survival. Every topic has a link with learning resources. Read the learning objectives, study the content, and if you are a SSAR volunteer, take the quiz. Repeat as many times as necessary to master each subject.

It is strongly recommended that anyone looking to build a solid foundation of SAR knowledge should pick up the book "Fundamentals of Search and Rescue" from The National Association For Search and Rescue.
