If he gets stuck, which I believe is unlikely, he tows it to the shop. The experience he gains will be invaluable in future DIY work.
If he has decently experienced friends for support then it's fine. I'd gladly invite a friend over to use my garage/tools in this situation. Losing a diff is pretty unlucky.
