Workshop details

Workshops are organised in five tracks

1.    Mountain Technical: subjects on land from 4×4 driving/recovery to mountain biking

2.    Water rescue: technical water related issues, such as canyon rescue and searching water margins

3.    Medical: including casualty management and the latest thinking on treating the hypothermic casualty

4.    Human factors: a range of topics from developing rescue leaders to best practise in rescue trauma counselling

5.    Search: search management skills and tools.


Under each track there is a choice on each day of one five hour workshop or two workshops each of two hours.

This allows us time to hold plenary sessions and in some cases travel to the workshop venue.

A full list of topics, including a bit of information about each is available here we will be updating this page as we go along, keep an eye on social media for news.

1. All delegates must bring Personal Protective Equipment appropriate for the workshops they attend.
2. With specified exceptions, you need to be a member of a police recognised rescue team to take part in a workshop.
3. Workshop details are subject to change
