POINT OF FIND
This course is designed to build team members confidence when approaching and managing a missing person at the point to find & to allow them to build a trusting relationship with a missing person.
The course will also develop a better understanding of each role within a point of find scenario and will help team members to increase their awareness of and ability to manage their own emotional needs at the same time and understanding of each role within a point of find scenario.
Candidates need to be qualified as a Search Technician or equivalent.
It would be ideal but not required for students to have completed a mental health health first aid course or similar psychosocial course from another organisation such as MHFA England, British Red Cross, MIND or the Samaritans. This is not a prerequisite but students should be encouraged to explore this training further on return to the units.
The point of find course gets students to consider the following areas when managing a missing person:
Scene and resource (Team and equipment) management
Physical health and care - first-aid
Mental health and care – psychosocial support
Communication with a missing person
Handover – passing a missing person onto the most appropriate organisation or agency e.g. ambulance or police for their ongoing care and support
Supporting team members during and after a search.
£100 per course, inclusive of accomodation & meals. Once you have completed the registration process, we will send you all the information you need along with payment details.
