Course Description

The Instructor-Led Training (ILT) component of the Technical Search Specialist course is designed to provide Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Task Force personnel with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform technical search functions for a US&R team during a disaster or a planned
event.

You will learn the essential requirements necessary to perform all physical, visual, and technical search functions. Upon completion of the ILT component, participants will be able to successfully perform the position of Technical Search Specialist on a US&R team.

This course is 28 hours of face-to-face training. Prior to attending this face-to-face training course, students must

Minneapolis, MN area responders that were dispatched to the bridge collapse on I-35 had been training and exercising in preparation for a large scale response for years. So when the I-35 bridge collapsed without warning with 160 people on the bridge killing 13 and injuring 121 others, they were ready.

I took many courses from TEEX-NERRTC over the years that helped me in the response.
