Crestline Experimental Dive Unit
presents the
2001 Rebreather Party

FEOR Training

        DEMA would not be complete without the requisite FEOR (Field Expedient Oxygen Rebreather) Training.

            The FEOR Training Class 2001/1, the first class of 2001 was held at the New Orleans Hilton Pool and Spa (right next door to the Rebreather party).

             This  was a Private Class with Personalized Instruction, unlike last years class (2000/1)  in Las Vegas.    Some customers  prefer private instruction, though the cost for this personalized instruction is prohibitive to all but the most discriminating few,  with deep pockets.   Marc G. (last name withheld for national security reasons) sailed through the instructions with flying colors.  Marc performed all tasks required, though caused somewhat of an alarm to the hotel staff, as they were  wondering how long "that person in the pool" was required to hold their breath.   (They were assured, "only until he gets it right".)

            Marc did it right the first time, thus earning his place as a DIY (Do It Yourself) Diver.

            Marc G. Congratulations on a job well done.

Now for some highlights of Marc's Training.

Another successful grey training operation.
    Training Mission Complete:

            No bubbles,
                No troubles, and
                    No records.
