UKLSI was established in 2003 to share best practise in lowland vulnerable missing person search. Since then, our courses have continued to develop, with our research driving this process.
UKLSI Training Venues
Our training venues are chosen carefully, to provide the best possible facilities whilst maintaining our incredible low prices. We guarantee you good food and comfortable facilities.
Those wishing to stay in a local hotel or B&B are welcome to do so..
UKLSI Networking Benefits
Course participants always remind us of the extensive benefits that stem from attending UKLSI courses.
One of these is the opportunity to learn and socialise with likeminded individuals from so many different units, and with such wide experiences. Our courses always involve members of several different units, and we generally run more than one course at a time.
The pubs close to our venues are welcoming to searchers, and we allow enough time for people to gain these benefits during their time with us.
Our instructors are all experienced searchers drawn primarily from ALSAR units. Many are qualified Search Controllers, and all attend the full range of our courses themselves. Regular Instructor training sessions are held, and all are encouraged to engage in continuing professional development.
Many hold key roles in their units and within ALSAR.
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 Certificate in Education (PGCE) and a Certificate in Education (Cert Ed), and holders of NVQ Assessors Awards.
All our trainers are subject to a Trainer Quality Monitoring (TQM) process.
