CNCC Training Events 2021

(1/3) > >>


Our Training Officer has had a rough first year in the role, with all attempts to organise events thwarted by Covid, including the much anticipated (and fully booked) SRT refresher workshops originally scheduled for February which had to be cancelled.

With things now looking up however, we are now pleased to offer a comprehensive series of training opportunities throughout this summer:

* May 29: Return to SRT
* May 30: Return to SRT
* June 5: Learning to rig
* June 6: SRT rescue
* June 12: New to caving session
* June 19: Underground geology
* June 26-27: Two-day SRT-workshop
* July 17: Improving your SRT skills
* July 18: Practical skills for trip leaders
* August 7-8: Two day new to SRT workshop
* September 4: Learning to rig
* September 5: SRT rescue
* September 25: New to SRT
* September 26: Improving your SRT skills
Full details for all of these, and signup can be found here:

All sessions are subject to the Covid roadmap going to plan, and will follow all requirements.

This is undoubtably the most extensive series of training opportunities the CNCC has offered for decades and we are thankful to Ian Patrick for putting this together. We hope these sessions will provide a great opportunity for anyone out of practice to refresh their skills, as well as opportunities to learn some new skills including advanced SRT, rigging, leadership or a bit of geology.

Most of the sessions have an associated fee as a contribution to the running costs, which is mainly venue hire and professional trainers. In most cases that fee reflects as little as half the actual per-person cost of running the event, with CNCC subsidising the difference.

We expect these events to be popular based on the enthusiasm we saw for the February sessions. However, to help us maximise attendance and give as many people as possible the opportunity to attend, please only book your place once you are confident in your availability.

Any questions, email for more information.

Excellent initiative.
A great way to start Summer!

This is awesome. We have booked into one of the courses and would love to go on others in the future.

Great to see lots of enthusiasm for these training sessions. Within 24hrs of these being broadcast, the 6th June Rescue Workshop is now fully booked (and only one space remaining on the 5th September session). The rate of signup tells us that rescue training is clearly very in-demand so we will bear that in mind. The new to rigging courses are also proving popular, but still availability in both sessions.

CNCC Training:
Take up so far of the training workshops has been very positive.

Both the SRT rescue workshops are now fully booked. We will look to add some extra dates in the near future.

CNCC training workshops are open to cavers from any region.

Please let us know of any other caver related training you would like to see been provided.
