Book events or training

Here at workingflatcoats we endeavour to provide our members with a wide selection of events and training days whenever and wherever we can. We know that for many of our members training needs to be provided locally. We aim to make training available to as many Society members as possible and if you have thoughts about where we can hold particular events, or wish to arrange an event or training session, please head on over to our ‘Sub-committee’ page and contact your local representative. Where we cannot provide training ourselves, we will try to put members in contact with trainers local to their area, although from experience, some travelling will be required.

Please click through on to the event pages below to view our most up-to-date lists of dates and locations for training, working tests, field trials and other events.

Unfortunately due to the pandemic we are not currently booking any events or training days. We hope that we will be able to update this section with some new dates soon and look forward to when we are able to do so.
