The 2015 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.

Day one (14th April 2015) featured water and rope instructor update workshops, run by international Instructor Trainers. Day three is for boat instructor workshops, as well as additional spaces on water and rope instructor workshops. Attendance at the relevant workshops and the technical rescue conference updated the attendees for a further two years as Rescue 3 Instructors.

Water or rope instructors attended days one and two (14th and 15th April) or days two and three (15th and 16th April). Boat instructors attended days two and three (15th and 16th April). Instructors in multiple disciplines attended all three days (16th-18th April). The update workshops involved practical demonstrations.

The conference day (15th April) on its own was open to all. You did not have to be a Rescue 3 Instructor to attend. It was of particular interest to training provider managers, Rescue 3 students, and non-Rescue 3 students alike.
