Search and rescue

The ‘Tracker’ training took place in Aruba from October 19 to November 7.

A total of 33 men are trained to become Military Trackers.

Tracking is the skill of locating, identifying, interpreting and chasing traces. Our “trackers” are used for, among other things, “search and rescue” tasks, (national) support of the Ministry of Justice and of course military operations around the world. In the first two weeks, the theory is taught which consists of three phases. Namely the technical-theoretical part where the skills to be learned are focused on the individual. This is followed by the team performance where it is taught to deploy the whole as a team.

And finally the final exercise follows in which everything learned must come together, both as an individual and as a team.
