They will be.

Beacons are pretty easy to use. 10-15 minutes of having someone show you how to use them and then it just boils down to practice. Which you can do around the house, in a park, but it is best once you can do it in the snow. It is something we go over for the on snow day with FOBP. Everyone gets to do a basic beacon search. Usually they are rescuing my pastrami sandwich that is in my pack buried in the snow with a beacon.
