Summary
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. 

 These LCMLA training courses are offered by Phil Baker (national Trainer/Assessor for all BCA awards). Assessments are organised by arrangement. Please get in touch if you are interested in assessment dates as these can be offered but need to be arranged individually. 

 This is a two-day course based in the Peak District which looks at all aspects of the syllabus for modules one and two of the scheme. Please note that two day courses can only cover caves. For those wishing to add mines training it is possible to extend the course (at another agreed date) to include mines.

Bookings can be made online or over the phone. All of our courses can be booked in 3 ways:

a) Attend a scheduled course. 
These are open to the public to anyone that meets the pre-requisites. We often advertise many dates for each course, we generally always list 12 months of available dates. This is the most popular and often works out the most cost-effective way of attending our courses.

b) Add a date to our schedule. 
On some courses, we can add extra dates to our schedule, providing you are booking for a certain minimum number of participants, this could be as low as only 2 people. To give us plenty of time to assign staff to your course, you can only add a date to the schedule if it is more than 7 days in advance.

c) Make a private booking.
All of our courses can be booked privately, with a private instructor just for you or your group. This gives you the flexibility to book any date that suits you and also it means the instructor can fine-tune the course content to suit your aspirations. To make a private booking, you just need to fill our a booking request, we will then get back to you with availability and a price. 

d) Book our premium 'Private Booking Plus+' service.
All the benefits of the private booking service, with lots of additional extras including meet & greet at your hotel, luxury picnic hamper including Champagne, digital photo pack, flexible booking arrangements and a pre-activity consultancy to allow your first-class instructor extra time to design your special day. To make a private booking plus+ booking, you just need to fill our a booking request, we will then get back to you with availability and a price. 
Almost all courses begin and end at our base, The Adventure Hub, where you will have access to complimentary tea and coffee. 

We do not provide food as part of our courses and you will need to bring a packed lunch along for each day. There is a cafe on-site that can provide you with sandwiches, cakes and drinks.
