LOCAL CAVE MINE LEADER AWARD (LCMLA) & CAVE INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATE (CIC)

The Local Cave Mine Leader Award (LCMLA) is an accreditation scheme for those leading groups in UK caves and abandoned mines. The LCMLA scheme is nationally administered by the British Caving Association. Level 1 is appropriate for leaders working in horizontal cave/mine systems and Level 2 for those who lead groups in caves and mines with vertical pitches.

The Cave Instructor Certificate (CIC) is the highest instructing award in caving and is designed for those involved in teaching caving skills and leading guided parties in the full range of UK caves and potholes. Click [here] for more information about the CIC scheme on the BCA website.
