Olds Search and Rescue Society




Olds Search and Rescue Society fully endorses and began delivering the National GPS Training and Certification Program to members in 2006. We are fortunate to have an instructor as one of our members and our courses are open to all SAR workers and members of the general public.

The training is designed to provide participants with a solid foundation in the use of a map, a compass and a GPS unit and an understanding of how these tools work together to keep the user safe.


To find out if the National GPS Certification Program is right for you look at these web sites of The National GPS Certification Program and The Canadian Ecology Centre the developers of this training program for more details.

To make arrangements for your own course or to attend one of ours contact our training coordinator for complete details.
