1000 - Completion
The SARTECH II level of certification is the intermediate level for SAR personnel. This level is recommended for any person who functions on SAR missions as field searchers. It now required that candidates complete a NASAR Fundamentals of Search and Rescue Course, or recognized equivalent prior to testing.
The SARTECH II examination consists of written exam and a practical exam. The written exam includes one hundred and forty-five (145) questions covering the candidate's knowledge of search and rescue. A passing grade is 80% (102 correct answers) or above. The written exam must be completed online prior to the practical skills testing. Upon passing the written exam, the candidate is then required to successfully complete a eight station practical exam. Should the candidate not successfully complete all of the practical exam stations, only the stations that are failed need be repeated if this is done within one year of the original testing date.
The candidate's performance of SAR skills is evaluated at six practical exam stations involving:
Station #1 Land Navigation: Use of topographic maps and compass. Candidates complete a course over terrain commonly encountered in the operations area in a specified time frame, not to exceed 1000 meters.
Station #2 Tracking: Candidates identify and mark a footprint track left by the evaluator and follow the track to its end.
Station #3 24-hour Pack: Candidates should carry the basic survival and safety supplies for their environment and the items to complete the stations. (If a candidate does not have the supplies to take the stations this station will be marked as a failure)
