SARTECH II Testing Spring 2011
K9SARK Team members test for their NASAR SARTECH III and II certifications during the spring 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 SAR skills along with hands on testing for map & compass, rescue rope skills and man tracking. A pack check follows the written test. A searcher must have and carry all the equipment listed by NASAR in a 24-hour ready pack.

The NASAR SARTECH II certification is awarded only after successful completion of a written test and a skills test conducted over 3 days. 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 !
