Today was the start of another JJ-CCR course, this time for Alan and Elvis (see photos). Alan originally asked for the course to be on a one to one basis, but now seems happy for Elvis to join in  
We started with a little Advanced Nitrox theory, which Elvis lapped up and found very easy, Alan found it a little harder, but i'm sure he will get there in the end  #rebreatherpro-training

Quick stop off.
