OTS is excited to host the first Cybertracker Evaluation & Tracker Certification in this part of North America.  Cybertracker is a system designed to evaluate African guides and natives for their skill in tracking. Now, North America’s cybertracker is available to us to evaluate and motivate our own learning. A typical Cybertracker Evaluation is a two day field course with an evaluator.

The evaluator will take a group of no more than a dozen out into the field, and select tracks and sign for the student to examine and give an answer. After several tracks and sign are recorded, a detailed discussion is held with the group and increasingly complex questions are asked by the evaluator.  At the end, a score and level of certification is awarded. The evaluation has been used by numerous agencies to evaluate the tracking skills of their personnel.

The Cybertracker Evaluation is limited to 12 participants and is filled on a first-come first-served basis with preference being given to those enrolled in our Tracking Intensive series.  Please register as soon as possible.  If the evaluation is full, you will be notified and placed on the waiting list.
