Moorland rescuers talked to students about their work and showed them their medical and rescue gear.
Two members of the Holme Valley Moorland Rescue Team, Matthew Green and Stuart Milner spent a morning at Rathbone Training in Edgerton.
Rathbone is a training charity which offers an alternative education curriculum to young people.
The two rescuers gave a talk with slides about the team's set-up which can call upon 30 members - and there are trainees in the pipeline.
As well as rescuing ramblers lost on the moors, the team also helps police in searches in urban areas.
Mr Milner said: "This year to date has been our most busy year with over 20 call-outs logged so far. We explained that all members are volunteers who come from all sorts of different backgrounds who are on call 24 hours a day.
"Each person brings different skills to the team."
The Rathbone students inspected the team's ambulance, a converted Land Rover which was a new addition this year.
They looked at its radio equipment, oxygen kits and its major incident first aid kit, which includes a blood pressure monitor.
Gary Parker, Rathbone training adviser, was put on a stretcher to show how rescue victims were looked after once they were found.
The Holme Valley Moorland Rescue Team based at Meltham Hall, Meltham, is funded solely by charitable donations.
