Underwater Knife Fighting Certificate

I have recently discovered that I am one of a few thousand ex regs now TA whose records have been completely wiped by the change to JPA.

As well as having a new number I now have a clean sheet :D but no quals, including range quals 8O

My Admin Office have invited me to remake my record by bringing in any paper copies of certificates i (might) have earned over my previous service........ :wink:

I've heard the under water knife fighting course is particularly arduous, but it might be possible to get a certificate for, maybe even as an instructor.

Are there any other courses (brit or international) anyone could recommend, besides beach volley ball instructor (swedish army), panda gynecologist and dolphin trainer (hong kong sea world)?
I'm a fully qualified Seawolf pilot and exocet door-opener.
My underwater wood-welding course was full of walts who made out they were engineers or something. I knew better though :)
Jim Shortt runs an underwater knife fighting course, you could retake the exam if you've lost the original certificate and CTT crossed snorkel and knife badge. Just trying to help.
