Track a Person in a Natural Environment

Learners assessed against this unit standard will possess the skills and techniques required to track a human as an individual or as part of a tracking team. He/she will be able to identify tracks/trails left by suspects, interpret spoor, demonstrate anti-tracking and tactical tracking even in the face of anti-tracking measures. This includes the improved detection of illegal activity in areas of operation with faster rates and response times for extended periods of time and over hostile terrain resulting in increased arrests and the ultimate prosecution of perpetrators of environmental crimes.

This programme is aimed at organisations (both private and government) and individuals who form part of tracking teams e.g. anti-poaching units as well as field rangers who patrol conservation areas. The upsurge in illegal poaching activity in conservation or natural systems has also necessitated that this course is aimed at a wider audience including resource managers and environmental officers.
