On December 5 and 6, 2017, Florida SART sponsored a 2-day K9 Handler/First Responder Advanced Scope training class for canine handlers and their working canines. SART partnered with expert educators from the K9 MEDICTM training program and SynDaver Labs, the world's leading manufacturer of synthetic humans and canines, to provide canine handlers a unique, advanced scope training format within a scenario-based and comprehensive hands-on training environment. The "K9 Handler/First Responder Advanced Scope" training class is geared for those handlers and first responders who will face environments which require additional medical support for their canines. Students had the tremendous opportunity to practice pre-veterinary emergency medical skills on SynDaver's synthetic surgical canines, basic and advanced veterinary manikins, and live canines (for noninvasive demos). This training taught canine handlers the advance skills needed to prevent and treat injuries and illnesses in working dogs, and it trained canine handlers to become field-ready. Students received a K9 MEDICTM Certificate of Completion and Continuing Education Credit for Law Enforcement and EMS providers.
