Cord management is the name of the game with that, if you don't want to invest in one, then see if you can borrow one from the instructor or a friend for the course.
^. Assuming your local community is anything like ours in southern California, you'd be hard-pressed to not find someone willing to lend you a corded primary, or any other gear really, for class/practice (likely with the understanding that if you break/lose it you fix/replace it :) )

Conversation with a cave diver the other week about cordless primaries- "so what if you drop it, just pick it up". Different perspectives!

The Flare EXP is a really nice light IMO, but as others have mentioned it is NOT fun to drop it, and you WILL drop it eventually.

I'm buying a corded primary again to use for dives in open water as that's the worst possible place to drop a cordless one, will be keeping the EXP for mines/caves.

I guess everywhere that cave diver dives has the floor right under them at all times.

Have you found the sarcasm emoji?
