Please note there are very specific limits placed on the full day First Aid training outlined in the conference letter.  The First Aid training is a longer day as outlined in the letter.

We have a wide range of sessions that are in response to the feedback we’ve received from last year and in the interest survey I sent out in the fall.  Please complete the registration process by the end of day Friday, January 26 and we’ll get your individual schedules out to the schools on Monday, January 29th.
