Tuesday 6 February, 2.45 pm – 3.15 pm: Operating Pop-Up Pools - Jo Talbot, RLSS UK, and Richard Lamburn, Swim England – Pop-up swimming pools have become very popular in commercial and education environments over the past few years.

Wednesday 7 February 1.30 pm – 2.15 pm: Lessons from Incidents in Swimming Pools - Jo Talbot, RLSS UK – Accidents and incidents happen from time to time thankfully, major incidents are rare in our industry, but we should always share and learn to prevent reoccurrences, where possible.

2. CPD points: available for all RLSS UK seminars. 

3.
