    You are absolutely correct, Jim. The issues I had with the DPV course, real drove home the seriousness of diving a rebreather. One missed step in the check lists, one "brain fart"...... & could easily wind up a fatality statistic. Before the class, I just accepted that as fact, now I realize it as fact. As I said, I will still learn the unit, but I am going to take in much, much more seriously than I did before.

    That would then make you the instructor I'd want to do a Prism course with. If I were to ever lose my mind, win the lottery so I could buy one, and convince my GF that diving a black box of death is a good idea!
    :D
    Seriously though I am likely going to try one this season when Doppler has another workshop out at Gilboa. But my next definite move is sidemount before anything else.
    Good luck Tammy and keep posting. I am interested in how it goes and what you encounter with it.
