I am not aware of any training clubs or groups in El Paso. The clubs in Albuquerque NM are the closest and are really good people. I think their HT is this weekend at the Bos Del Apache which is about 180 miles north of El Paso. It might be worth your friends time to go to the test and see who he can find. I currently live in El Paso but am in the process of moving to Dallas-Fort Worth area. I was never able to find anyone to train with so just trained on my own, and as a newbie it was tough.
