Introduction

I am Pete Knight, a caver and mine explorer. I hold the Cave Instructor Certificate and am a multi-discipline outdoor instructor. I run a small business based in the Peak District called Peak Instruction and I deliver caver training across the UK via my personal site, Underground Specialist. I’m also a freelance work at height trainer, anchor installer, high ropes inspector and technical advisor to the outdoor industry.

This blog exists as a place to host useful information on caving, mine exploration, equipment and techniques, and anything else of use to the caving and general outdoor community.

I sit on the both the Derbyshire and North Wales panels of LCMLA trainer/assessors and can deliver training and assessments for all modules of the Local Cave and Mine Leader Awards. As a member of the CIC panel, I can also deliver training and assessment for the Cave Instructor Certificate Mines Module.
