An exciting double page colour article written by journalist Leanne Moore was published in the Sunday Times 3 days ago reporting on the caving scene in Ireland, the SUI, cave rescue and how to get involved. Read the full article here: Sunday Times Caving Article. If you want to give caving a go see the Try Caving section or go to the Try Caving Calendar to find an event suitable for beginners!
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
