Caver Training Print E-mail

It is important to develop the basic skills and techniques which will enable you to visit more challenging caves. This training can be gained in a number of ways. 

Many caving clubs will offer training to new members and this is something you can ask about when choosing a club to join.

There are a number of commercial instructors with BCA recognised qualifications who offer training for a variable charge. Details of such instructors and courses can be found online in the links section of this website and in the caving press in magazines such as 'DESCENT'. Remember that centres offering courses to people under the age of eighteen must now be registered under the Adventure Centres (Young Persons' Safety) Act 1995. 

Regional Councils:
The regional cavingcouncils also arrange courses in their regions and these may enable you to meet other cavers or contact a local caving club. If you require further details on training you can contact the BCA Training Officer via BCA's website www.british-caving.org.uk .
