Training

The CNCC has been providing training opportunities for northern cavers for over 50 years, helping to deliver skills ranging from first aid, conservation techniques, rescue skills, SRT, surveying and geology.

We are delighted to present our upcoming training workshops here. These are open to all cavers. For many we ask for a contribution to the costs of running the event, although costs are kept low and are often heavily subsidised. All face-to-face workshops are generally run in the Yorkshire Dales area, require advanced sign-up and may require a deposit to secure your place.

Hopefully all the information you need can be found here, but if you have any questions, please contact our Training Officer: training@cncc.org.uk

If you have any specific training needs or requests then please do get in touch. For example, if your club/group would like a dedicated training event, let us know and we may be able to help or advise. Likewise, if you have any suggestions for future training that may benefit others, or if you are willing to deliver some training for CNCC in any aspect of caving, please also get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
