Airedale Rescue Training (ART)

The ATCA Rescue and Adoption Committee is happy to offer an optional training program for apprentice rescue volunteers who are unable, or for some reason choose not, to obtain training through an active Airedale Rescue Regional Group operating in their area of residence. This program is not intended to replace the regular method of becoming an Airedale Rescue volunteer by joining an Airedale Rescue Regional Group. To find a group in your area, visit our list of regional rescue contacts.

If you are ready to train, and want to use the ART program, let us know.
