K9SARK Team members Laurie & K9 Sam, Derrick & K9 Rookie, Mike S. & K9 Helix, Ann & K9 Ula, and Janice & K9 Tyson test for their NASAR K-9 SARTECH III and II certifications during the fall of 2011. This is a national certification with only a handfull of search teams in the state obtaining the title. The certification requires a written test of general K9 SAR skills along with hands on testing for the K-9's and their Handlers. A pack check follows the written test. A searcher must have all the equipment listed by NASAR in a 24-hour ready pack.

Team members must carry a 35-40 lb pack with their rescue gear inside while navigating a compass course. They must learn to read a topo map and conduct line searches along with mantracking skills. Only after completing all sections successfully are they new SARTECH II's !
