Welcome to new members!

16 March 2015  |  News  |  ,

Following on from our new members’ recruitment period in January we are pleased to announce that we have eight newly qualified searchers on the team. The new volunteers have undergone several evenings of training over the last five weeks to prepare them for their Search Technician course run by UKLSI at Oxenwood this weekend.

A huge ‘Well Done’ to Liz, Tim, Steve, Bradley, Kevin, Ken, Paul and James who are all now ‘on call’ having displayed the necessary skills to be signed up as fully qualified Search Technicians.

All of WILSAR welcome you to the Team and look forward to working with you for years to come.

Navigation Success
