Hi guys. I'm intrigued to know what the difference is between JJ level1 and MOD1?

No difference. Level 1 is the term used by IART agency. Mod 1 is the generic term when people mean the intro level user course generally with air diluent.

Mod 1 normally means user-level, and The Baron says. I though the origin of this term (Module 1, etc.) was with IANTD & TDI, but I guess this is lost in the annals of time now.

Thanks guys. I'm aware that both MOD1 and IART L1 are both the intro courses but I was recently told that certain JJ instructors prefer the IART level1 and wasn't really sure why. Any ideas? JJ looks like an awesome unit.

I guess the course material is cheaper and the profits are higher?

Yeah I did IANTD Mod 1 on my Sentinel originally.

Then did the IART L1 when I crossed over to the JJ.

The content was roughly similar although with different materials so some focus areas were a bit different.

Both of these were Unit Specific certifications. Whereas IANTD Mod 2 and Mod 3 do not specify the unit on the certs.

Ah, interesting. Thanks :)
Sounds like with a JJ the IART level one is mandatory, or certainly recommended when first using the unit. All interesting stuff.
Just need to find the bloody money. Wedding, house renovation, etc seem it be the priority of my CFO / wife to be :)

Guys n girls. I thought I would add on to this post which I placed last year..
So, last week I did my TDI CCR air dil deco diver, unit specific to the JJ. Great instruction and what an amazing piece of equipment. I was absolutely amazed how well balanced the JJ is, it's a dream to dive. Love it. I was lucky enough for a friend to lend me his unit for the course and I was pained to return it :) I guess the only answer is to get my own, but when, I don't know.

Thanks for the link Baron. For the time being I am going to borrow a couple of friends units (as long as they are free when I would like to use them) and ideally buy a new unit next year.
