The Local Cave Mine Leader Assessment (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.
These LCMLA and CIC training courses are offered on set dates by Phil through his association with Adventure Unlimited, as their BCA course provider. Details and booking can be found here. If you choose to book please mention ‘Phil Baker’ in the process.

Alternatively if the dates aren’t suitable or if you require a bespoke course for a group contact Phil direct through the enquiry page on this website here.
Assessments for all BCA Awards are organised by arrangement. Please get in touch if you are interested in assessment dates.
