**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).
▀ 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, June 26, 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.
Weeks 2 & 3:
Monday, July 1 (public holiday), 7-11 pm, Lei Yue Mun
Sunday, July 7, 7-11 pm, Lei Yue Mun
You will take the examination for Level 1 certification in week 3.
▀ Course cost: $332
The course fees are based on CHKCMU guidelines and go directly towards instructor and venue costs. (Note: $30 certification fee not included)
You must pay for the course in advance to secure your spot. We're asking you to do this to avoid last-minute dropouts who deprive others of the chance to take the course. Please transfer the course cost to Hang Seng Bank account[masked], and send proof of transfer to [masked], by 10 pm on Sunday, June 23rd. If you don't transfer the course fee by this time, we'll assume you don't want to take the course and will give your spot to someone else.

- Please bring climbing shoes.
