We have an easy schedule since we started a few days early but it always helps if you have strong candidates in a group. It's also good to see them help each other out after hours with preparing their presentations.

Between plenty of presentations by me, they also need to work on their own presentation for the classroom, confined and open water and to top it off, there are also theory exams lurking in the background and a general standards & procedures needs to be conquered as well.
