UKLSI was established in 2003 with the help of funding from the National Lottery,  to share best practice in Lowland Vulnerable missing person search. Since then our Nationally recognised courses have continued to develop into what we are able to offer you today. All of our training is based on National and International research by academics and SAR professionals - you get the latest thinking in SAR as well as the opportunity to meet new people with varied experiences of search. UKLSI courses are open to all agencies and we continue to train members from Mountain Rescue, Coast Guard, Police and Chaplaincy.


Nationally Recognised Courses


9 - 11 June

Our courses are all inclusive of accommodation , meals  and course materials


Our instructors are all experienced searchers drawn from Lowland Rescue units with many being qualified Search Managers & holding key roles in their units. Regular Instructor training sessions are held, and all are encouraged to engage in continuing professional development.

Whilst it is not possible to go through the lengthy and expensive process of gaining formal qualifications for all, the training process is managed and overseen by staff with Post Graduate Certificates in Education (PGCE), Certificates in Education (Cert Ed) and NVQ Assessors awards.

All of our trainers are subject to a trainer Quality Monitoring (TQM) process.
