16/03/2017 Revalidation Workshops - Name Change

Technically these are not revalidations as it is award holder's responsibility to maintain a current and valid logbook and ensure they are operating at the required standard for their work. The workshops cannot contain any element of assessment due to time and ratio restraints. As from 01/04/2017 these will be renamed Update Workshops as they aim to update award holder's in a range of areas through the provider and through networking with the others present. Any areas of concern noticed by the T/A running the workshop will be noted on the S4B report with a recommended action plan to remedy, and it becomes the award holder’s responsibility to address these.

It will take some time to update all documents etc to reflect the name change and to consolidate it within the general LCMLA/CIC jargon commonly in use.

LCMLA Revalidation Workshops. |

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 revalidate, you must contact a Trainer Assessor from that area to agree that those sites may be on your new certificate after revalidation. The revalidation 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 here lcmla_ta
