The Counter Tracking Course is a 3-day course designed to teach anyone interested in applying Counter Tracking techniques in a tactical environment. Most SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) Training focuses on survival and resistance subjects rather than escape and evasion. This course fills that gap as it pertains to evasion. Students who attend this course can expect to receive training on conducting passive and aggressive Counter Tracking techniques that begin at the individual level and progress to evading as a team. Students can expect not only to learn and practice diffrent Counter Tracking techniques that will help an evader but also employ them against a capable tracker element. Students who complete the course will also be presented with a certificate of completion. (This class session is a 30 + hour course)
