Caver Training Events 2022
The Derbyshire Caving Association has just listed dates for subsidised / low cost caver training workshops coming up over the next couple of months. There are a range of topics from technical to geological, so check out the list and see if anything takes your fancy. The PDF schedule and workshop descriptions can be accessed via the News page of the DCA website:
Please note that the Training Officer and Treasurer are away for 2 weeks, so there may be a delay in replies to enquiries and bookings until they return.

Apologies but the email for Jo White is incorrect on the website and the webmaster is now away on holiday. You can email the DCA Training Officer instead or hang fire a couple of weeks until we can get the website updated.
