Hi, these are great suggestions, thanks!Hi @aristotelis! Cool to see that you are back diving
May I suggest you two things?
1 - do not think about the tec pass and not even a rec pass; it is ok to get a pass rating, but you'll most likely become obsessed and stressed if you start thinking about it. Just dive, have fun, and practice skills frequently; indeed, practising skills is something you'll never stop doing (or, at least, you shouldn't)... I end almost every dive with some exercises, just for fun
2 - if you are so much a beginner and you like GUE, why not take a rec1 course and then a rec2? Although more expensive, if your only certification is the OW, you will learn so many things in terms of skills, navigation and rescue that the content/price ratio will be advantageous for you.
The thing with getting a pass is that it's the achievement, which gives one the opportunity to progress.
I wouldn't want to get obsessed with any pass, rec or tech, but on the other hand I'd like my skills to improve and reach this milestone.
In the past I've considered Rec 1, my concern is the cost, so this was a difficult decision.
Rec 2 on the other hand is still on my TODO list, as rescue and first aid are some of my favorite topics!
We'll see, I'm still wet behind the ears!
Many thanks, stay safe!
