Featured Workshop: Emergency Training - Building Confidence and Competence

How do you ensure your team is ready for emergencies, and how will you prove that they are competent? Go beyond the basics with your emergency in-service training and find out how written expectations, procedures, drop drills, remediation, and concrete evaluation frameworks can build trust and transform a team.

Host: Naomi Switzer

Since 2012, Naomi has immersed herself in the field of aquatics. Like many aquatics professionals, Naomi’s experience expands past water, taking on roles and education in safety, and physical health. Working in these various positions has provided experience in leadership, team-building, safety guidelines and applications. She has become a passionate advocate for emergency response training within aquatic environments.

Currently serving as a Program Coordinator with the City of Fort Saskatchewan, Naomi is deeply committed to the culture of the aquatics team that she works with and prioritizes staff morale and engagement.
