    Permission to attend unofficially? I am missing ALC, and will attend again to qualify on Milpac. Will give a better understanding of the role for me when I fill in on Ops which seems to be frequently now

    I would like to attend, SPC.Hamm.C, C/1/A/1-7, [153A]

    So, I was going to sign up for this course but it says only 2 students per instructor and only lists one instructor and 2 other people had already signed up. Can I attend since apparently there are more than 2 per the one instructor.
