Dear Members,

Due to circumstances beyond Beverly Truss’s control she will be unable to hold our First Aid day long Seminar on Sat 2nd December next.  She will, however, reschedule it for mid January.  Bev had hoped to contact all our Members over the last few days with the details as it is on the IBKCA website since last week.  She sends her apologies to all.

Marie Butler. Sec. IBKCA.


Ms Beverly Truss. DipCAPBT (COAPE) Reg. Vet. Nurse & CFR INSTRUCTER Will again on behalf of the Irish Boarding Kennels & Cattery
Association hold a First Aid Day long course in the Maldron Hotel, Portlaoise on 2nd. Dec 2017. This is necessary for all Kennel owners and
staff in order to acquire this valuable information and to be in a position to display the CFR / First Aid Certificate that as many as possible
attend on the day.

Beverly will email the details to all members and as she is going on Holidays on the 6th. we don’t have time on our side. I apologise for this
but I confused the date of her Holidays and in order to receive the study material in the form of a PDH document you will need to respond
very quickly, again my fault, sorry.

You may also contact Bev at info@petproblems.net or thehogsprickle@gmail.com. The cost of the course is 110euro which we subsidize,
so the cost to the members is 40euro. A light lunch will be provided. I really urge as many as possible to complete the course. I’m will do
the refreshers course also on the day as I need to up date my skills.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Marie Butler. Sec. IBKCA.
