Each group is different; contact a SAR team and find out. We require new members to have minimal SAR certification before they go on a search-and same for the dogs - must also be certified before searching but all that is coordinated through the team with the appropriate agencies.

I assume teams in the area would evaluate you and the dog. The right people are much harder to find than the right dogs. It is a huge commitment both in time and in money.
