    CCR normoxic instructors for caves in Lot, France?

    I'm interested in doing my CCR mod 2 (normoxic) in the caves of the Lot/Dordogne.

    Can anyone recommend an instructor who teaches there? Do any of the CCR instructors from the UK who also dive caves come down to the Lot for teaching?

    Thanks!

    I don't speak much French, so I'd want the instruction to be in English. And I'm diving a rEVO.

    Should have mentioned those things in the first post - thanks!

    On the rEvo you won't find many instructors doing MOD2 in caves.
    Pascal won't be able to do it as he dives an Inspiration and doesn't speak much english.

    Frank is a very good instructor but does not teach on rEvo, he won't be able to deliver a card (but I might be wrong).

    RANT ON This is where the unit specific nonsense bites back, you can't get tuition from excellent instructors just because the counterlung is backmounted in a steel case or the shearwater startup screen says rEvo instead of JJ/Prism whatever... When you have these issues people will just give it a go as tbh diving Trimix on a CCR is not rocket surgery. I don't understand how does it make diving safer for the divers, not the manufacturers? RANT OFF
    I hope you find someone and can learn how to do it safely. I feel your pain as even non-cave trimix training will get trickier on certain units in certain locations.

    Yes, actually I didn't even realise that the instructor had to be diving the same unit as the student for normoxic. I don't see the justification for that restriction, but I'd be open to persuasion. Anyway, nothing I can do about it. If I can't find someone for France, I'll just hold off and do the training back in Florida - just that the French caves are so inviting for trimix :)
