Cave Leader training Dales

Steve was very busy last week running two back to back Cave Leader training courses in the Yorkshire Dales with five excellent candidates on each.  We covered karst geography & geology, hydrology, access & conservation, relevant environmental issues, cave formation & formations, personal caving, appropriate equipment, group management and leadership (with a strong emphasis on making sure everyone has an enjoyable and positive experience), navigation underground and the Local Cave leader scheme and progressions.  Steve covered all of this outdoors and in caves in a completely practical and hands on manner – a great time was had by all!

If you are interested in trying caving or developing your current level either for personal recreation or to gain professional leadership qualifications, Steve will be pleased to hear from you and happy to help: and 07796 213817.  He runs regular Cave Leader and Vertical Cave Leader courses  – the next courses are Vertical Cave Leader courses on 9th-10th Feb and 16th-17th Feb 2023 in the Yorkshire Dales, though check the website for a full and current list of offerings.
