Generally speaking the Alberta Speleological Society does not train cavers. However, we do occasionally hold training or practice sessions on Single Rope Technique (SRT) which is the means by which cavers negotiate vertical drops in caves.
Typically the SRT training is conducted indoors in a gymnasium, scout hall or other high-ceiling space. There is no charge for the training, although the hall rental is paid for by participants. Members of the Alberta Speleological Society provide this training on a volunteer basis and ACCEPT NO LIABILITY for errors or injuries arising therefrom! Contact an executive member for information the next SRT training session.
Cave rescue training is not conducted by the A.S.S., although we do list rescue training seminars by others on our events calendar. If you are interested in cave rescue, please contact the Alberta Cave Rescue Organization.
