If you're interested in joining, we'd be glad to have you! Each year, around the beginning of UVA's fall academic semester, BRMRG holds a few information sessions and a Callout Qualification workshop. By attending an information meeting and the workshop, you can see if BRMRG is right for you.
After completing some paperwork, online courses, and a couple in-person trainings, you will be qualified to begin responding to missions. Weekly training on topics like land navigation, wilderness survival, and search theory prepares members to become certified as Field Team Members, and potentially Field Team Leaders, within the year.
While the majority of new members join in the early fall, you are welcome to join us at any training event. The officers will ensure that you receive the training necessary for Callout Qualification as it fits with the group’s training schedule. Please contact the Group Training Officer via email to coordinate.
