The SUI Cave Photography Workshop is on the move! The new date for the workshop is on the afternoon of Saturday 25th October during SUICRO 30 in Cahir, Co Tipperary. The workshop will consist of a classroom session followed by a short underground trip to practice in the nearby caves. Entrance to the workshop is free to SUI members. Cost for non-members is 10 euro. A prize for the best photograph taken at the workshop will be announced during the SUICRO Photography Competition. To book your place or to find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org
The SUI is pleased to announce it is running an assessment day for Basic Cave Leader (BCL) award candidates in Co Clare on Saturday June 14th 2014. The assessment is open to those who have completed the BCL training weekend. Places are limited so if you want to complete the award please contact SUI ASAP to secure your position! BCL is part of the SUI’s Training Framework. For further details including cost and log book submission email email@example.com
In certain cases SUI has a facility to recognize the prior experience and learning of experienced cavers and members of the SUI. This is to allow applicants to the training courses (BCL, CL) to be exempted from course pre- requisites so as to facilitate them in taking the training or assessment.
The SUI also offers this process in order to recognise qualifications gained through another caving association(e.g. BCA etc.) or national governing body for the purposes of placing these individuals straight on to the appropriate level in the SUI training framework
This facility is open to SUI members only: the application form is available online in the members only section
Please note that the BCL Assessment scheduled for the 14th November has been postponed to a date in the spring, (not yet fixed). If you or your colleagues are intending to apply for assessment, log books must be submitted on or before the date as laid out. This is to facilitate stage one of the the assessment process which is to evaluate the submitted logbook and to invite or decline the candidate onto the assessment.
Further information will be posted on this website.
