The 2017 Rescue 3 Europe Technical Rescue Conference combined two technical rescue instructor update days in North Wales, with a world-class conference at Llangollen International Pavilion. This allowed Rescue 3 instructors to attend instructor update workshops as well as the conference.

Attendance at the relevant workshops and the technical rescue conference updated the instructor status of existing Rescue 3 instructors.

 

 

The conference day and trade exhibition (26th April) on its own was open to all. You did not have to be a Rescue 3 Instructor to attend the conference day. It was of particular interest to training provider managers, Rescue 3 students, and non-Rescue 3 students alike.
