The NASAR calendar tracks courses, evaluations, conferences and other events that are open to the public. Not all courses show up on the map (they only show up if we have the address of the course). Check the chronological list for ALL the courses offered. If you have a conference you want listed, please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the NASAR Fundamentals of SAR course. We will possibly be adding the National Ski Patrol MTR 1&2 with it. Course cost is $200 per student.
