Training DVD's

Seeing as I am stuck out here in RIB wasteland ,with little hands on training available,I was wondering if there are any DVD's on the subject.?
I have done some of the generic safety courses over here, but nothing specific to RIB's.(think the nearest training course is 2,500 miles away
Would be interested to be able to see video/instruction to pick up a few of the handling specifics.
Video tape would be no good as we run a differant format over here so wondered if anyone could recommend a DVD ? (if any are available)
cheers Dal

Vacation in California??

Thanks Hannah,
will give them a call.
Was your video just of showing RIBs in action, or was there a specific theme to the video?
I would have thought due to the large RIB following in the UK, that there would be no shortage of instructional videos!
Sounds like Alan may have the right idea and I may have to trade instruction for vacation time!.
I had comtemplated asking if any Instructors wanted an economical vacation in California! Accomodation is often a large part of the expense of a trip to the USA. and would trade a nice guest room in return for hands on training.
The only drawback I see is getting someone suitable! Preferably a couple or family with young kids who are pretty easy going.
(RichL stayed with us and can vouch that we are not too scary!!! )
But if anyone is interested drop me a PM.
Of course we are biased ,but San Diego is Americas Finest City!!
cheers Dal
