**PLEASE READ THE EVENT DESCRIPTION BEFORE RSVPing TO THIS EVENT**
Many of you have asked about Level 1 certification, so here's your chance to get certified!
▀ Level 1 certification involves instruction and examination on:
-Use of basic climbing equipment
-Proper belay and climbing technique
-Proper falling technique
Level 1 certification is needed if you want to get Level 2 (lead-climbing) certification through the China Hong Kong Climbing and Mountaineering Union (the official climbing body in HK).
▀ Course cost: $280 (based on 20 students)
Please bring the course payment with you to the first session on February 27.
The course fees are based on CHKCMU guidelines and will go towards covering instructor and venue costs. (Note: $30 certification fee not included)
▀ The course will take place over three weeks, and involves 11 hours of instruction in total.
You must attend all 11 hours of the course to receive the certification.
Wednesday, February 27, 7-10 pm, Shun Lee Tsuen
We have a regular climb scheduled for this night. If you're taking the Level 1 course, you will NOT be climbing--you'll be doing your theory session with Charles at the wall.
