Training - LCMLA Update Workshops (formerly known as revalidations)

Application forms and payment must be sent to the Training Administrator at least 6 weeks before the workshop date in order to secure your booking.

If you cannot find a suitable course listed below please contact BCA Training Administrator.

These workshops are filling fast! Book early to be sure of your place.

If the booking deadline has passed please phone Training Administration as you may still be able to join the workshop.

As from 01/07/2016, if you have caves and or mines on your certificate or wish to add new ones from an area other than that in which you are going to update, you must contact a Trainer Assessor from that area to agree that those sites may be on your new certificate after the update workshop. The update workshop leader will ask to see evidence that this has been done – such as an email. Contact details for all Trainer Assessors can be found on this website.

The workshop booking form can be downloaded from the Downloads page here.
