Our costs are $50 per student. Pincher Creek Search and Rescue is not receiving outside funding for this course. If a registered student does not attend, PC SAR will still have to pay fixed costs.

For non-PC SAR members, a deposit of $50 is required to hold a seat.

For PC SAR members, PC SAR will use internal funding to cover the cost of the course. A $50 deposit is still required which will be refunded if the student completes the course.
