Every year in the UK thousands of people die or are seriously injured in incidents. Many deaths could be prevented if first aid was given before emergency services arrive.

This course provides information and practical advice on what to do in situations that require first aid.

The scenario-based content shows what could happen and what you should do in emergency situations.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
