Corona Virus...
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic all face to face courses are currently on hold. Although technically it could be argued these are work courses, and so a reasonable excuse to travel and gather, it would seem more appropriate to hold back on courses until things settle.

This website has also been set up to provide candidates working through their Local Cave & Mine Leader award, providing  resources that should help candidates prepare for assessment. The resources pages are for course participants only, so are password protected. Get in touch if you’d like the password!
