NGB Courses by Nigel Ball

For over twenty years, Nigel has run courses on behalf of the British Caving Association, the National Governing Body for the sport. He has delivered many Local Cave and Mine Leader training courses at Level 1 and Level 2. These have subsequently been followed up by the assessment of people's core or group day skills at both levels. Nigel is one of the few assessors who can deliver the Cave Instructor training and assessments, including the Mine Module.
