This course will present the most recent advances in lost person behavior, the latest research, new models of behavior, and several new behavioral modes. Developed by Robert Koester an international leader in search and rescue research, the participants will go into details of actual search missions and the profiles for different groups. From abduction to lost workers a total of 41 different subject categories now exist.

Participants will learn how to separate fact from legend, use data that is applicable to their unique region, receive a rapid introduction to key points of each profile, and most importantly learn where to send teams. This 16 hour course is a must for search managers, law enforcement officers, and anyone who is involved in the planning and strategy of Search and Rescue resource deployment.
