CNCC Training Courses

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 signup 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:

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.

BCA return to SRT workshop (indoors) (This is only for demonstration purposes)

February 1st

The last year has prevented caving for many people. As we look towards getting back into some excellent northern potholing, we know that some people may have lost a little confidence in their SRT or would appreciate instruction in a safe practice environment to refresh their skills. This one-day indoor workshop provides just that opportunity, to re-engage with SRT and build confidence in all the usual rope manoeuvres and practices needed to safely explore our potholes.

The morning will be spent recapping the most common SRT skills and looking at SRT kit setups. The afternoon will be time to hone any skills the individuals want to focus on with a patient trainer on hand to give any tips and help required.

An initial background understanding of the equipment and some existing SRT skills (basic prussiking, descending and general pitch safety) is required. The workshop will build on these skills in parallel with rebelay and deviation techniques to help get you fired up and ready for your 2021 meets list.
