In order to ensure a certain level of quality of service for the public authorities and families that request our help, members of the Association receive a complete training on every aspects of the search of a missing person.
Every team is responsible for the training of its members. In collaboration with the Sûreté du Québec, the Ministry of Public Safety and the AQBRS supervise the training by enforcing a certification and every volunteers must be found to be in compliance with it.
The basic training includes:

Map and Compass;
Ground Search Techniques;
