Basic Tracking Course for LE
The Basic Course is the beginning course for all students in our tracking program. The main objective of the Basic Course is to teach the student to see sign. We also use the Basic Course to teach our program methodology, and other basic skills of a professional tracker.
The Basic Course is open to all Law Enforcement Officers.
Intermediate Tracking Course for LE
The Intermediate Course is designed for our students who have successfully and repeatedly demonstrated the skills taught in the Basic Course but are not yet certified. The Intermediate Course introduces the tracking student to more complex sign and sign cutting as well as tracking in high risk environments which require the use of tactical maneuvers.
A Chief Instructor recommendation is required for the Intermediate Course. Students who desire to attend the course should contact a Chief Instructor prior to enrollment.
Advanced Tracking Course for LE
The Advanced Course is designed for students who have obtained certification in the program. This course is designed to replicate a real world event as closely as possible in a training environment.

Blue Line Certification Courses
Annually APTG invites instructors from Blue Line Tracking, LLC. to Virginia to teach a certification class to those students who have been recommended by APTG for certification. This is also an excellent opportunity for those holding certifications to be re-certified in accordance with Blue Line Tracking, LLC policy. These classes are open to all LE regardless of training levels. This annual class is held the third weekend in March.
