    Thinking of SEI AOW Class?

    My Husband and I just finished taking Jim Lap's AOW class July 30-Aug 2. I can't express how much we learned. Jim's dedication and expertise to diving is unsurpassed. I also want to mention his kindness and professionalism made us feel relaxed yet challenged. We spent a whole day just in...

    Divemaster Responsibilities

    Who did you think the police were doing the investigation for? The victim or the dive op. Or both? Did you think they were trying to do their job the best they could or were they just trying to get it over with? Just curious. The investigators I had didn't know about diving but asked questions...

    Diver Death in Cayman

    OK, I got everyones point and I value your opinions and and expertise. I understand a lot of you have MUCH MUCH more experience than I do.

    All instructors should have it so good to of had you as a student. You are making it sound like students should know how to dive and all the do's and don'ts of the diving world before they sign up for class. Hence the name "students". Hopefully, you teach better than you criticize.

    True, however, I don't think they have to go into a lengthy sales pitch, but tell people before they sign up with anyone do some research and then make a decision. That's all. But I don't think that is how most dive shops work. If someone calls and asks to take a course they don't question them...

    It's unfortunate that Instructors don't have to do CME courses just as Nurses, Dr's and teachers do so they can continue to do the best at what they are trained to do. Like you said they have to meet the MINIMUM required of them. Most people wouldn't think to ask that question when shopping...

    I am asking this so I can learn. And I realize PADI is not alone. I think SSI is in the same boat as PADI. Does PADI evaluate their Instrustors? If they do then how can instructors that aren't training properly continue to teach? Read my post before this one about Pam.

    I would like to see PADI do more training before giving out c cards. I don't like what PADI has become. Watching Pam on her dive she never should have been given a c card without more training. I can't say anything about Brendan because I was never his Buddy and didn't see him dive on a buddy level.

    Terry, True, especially if they were trained by PADI! And I say that because I never would have. (Oh, man am I going to get slammed by a PADI DM for this one):blinking::bash:

    Diver Death in Cayman

    Thank you for your condolences. But please understand when I first started posting I was very emotional. I did make some erroneous posts and may have stated that "ALL" dive ops were bad. I have to say that I have not been diving with ALL the dive ops in the Cayman's and that my opinion NOW is...

    Who is responsible for what?

    Jim, Thank you so much for putting this information together. I know it won't bring my friend back, but it may save other lives. I have learned so much from this terrible tragedy that my friend may have indeed saved my life as well as my husband's and others. I also know that Experience does...
