Conference Programme

A Big Thank You to all those who attended the First Aid Conference 2017. What an amazing buzz and atmosphere on the day. A special thank you to speakers, workshop presenters, exhibitors, Vine Centre Staff and First Aid Training Co-operative staff without whom the day would not have been such a Great Success.

We will be looking at all your evaluations early next week. We do appreciate your feedback. At this early stage we certainly would look forward to hosting this event again in 2019.
