SAR Alberta Events Calendar

A powerful system created by Mike Zandvliet and free for SAR Alberta to use, ITM was piloted by Calgary Search and Rescue starting in 2004. Since then, more than five teams are either using it or have had an account created for them. Go to [1] to see a listing of all Alberta search and rescue events.

ITM is a full training management system that is being improved with new features on a regular basis. It allows for online registration with manual or automatic confirmation modes. Membership database features allow contact lists to be generated. The system also records actual attendance, and allows your volunteers to see what they have attended and what they are registered for. Various reports can be generated – sign-in sheets, training records, team training summary. It also has significant syllabus features, allowing your training management team to create lesson allocations (the learning objectives to be covered and their priority) to give to instructors, improving consistency and standards. ITM currently has more than 500 learning objectives initially created during its pilot, that can be re-used and improved upon. There are automatic reminders to registered participants a few days before an event (can be turned off). Customized calendars can be created – for example in addition to your own team calendar, one could be made for the North Central region, including ERSARA and the other teams in your area. ITM allows you to see who has taught and organized events in the past. Location & contact information can be typed in just once, and then easily re-used by all future events as appropriate.

If your team is interested in using ITM, please contact one of the Organization Administrators listed below.

Please Read the information below for ICS training dates...

The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC) and AEMA will be hosting pilot courses for the ICS 200 Train the Trainer and ICS 300 and 400.  There are 20 spots open for each course.  The course and materials will be free, but participants will be responsible for meals, transportation and accommodation costs. 

The priority for the ICS 200 Train the Trainer is to have participation from those hold ICS 300 and who wish to instruct ICS 200 within the SAR community (and other organizations if applicable).

The priority for the ICS 300 is for instructors who currently do not have ICS 300 and would require it to teach ICS for their responders.

ICS 200 Train the Trainer September 13 Calgary – Location TBC 08:30 – 16:30 ICS 300 September 14 – 16 Calgary – Location TBC 08:30 – 16:30 daily ICS 300 September 28 – 30 Edmonton – Location TBC 08:30 – 16:30 daily ICS 400 October 18 – 20 Red Deer – Location TBC 08:30 – 16:30 daily ICS 300 November 28 – December 1 Edmonton – Location TBC 08:30 – 16:30 daily

Two more ICS 300 and an ICS 400 are being scheduled for early 2012.

To register, please email tom.cox@gov.ab.ca and specify which course, participant name, position, phone number and email address. Confirmation will be sent along with specific course details. Additional spots may be filled if space is available.
