    8:1 is instruction in name only as it is. It means the 0-2 naturals in the class already got it, 2-3 worst students will get just enough instructors attention not to die, and the rest are left to sink or swim. Might still beat them getting a set of second-hand gear and figuring it out on their own in the shallows, but not by much.

    As long as they don't drown, they get certified too.

    Now that the thread has calmed down a bit, I want to thank everyone for voicing their opinions, concerns, and suggestions. I understand now that this needs to be approached as a hobby, instead of a stream of income considering the factors with regards to my specific dive shop. I appreciate the candid assessment, and this conversation has been more than helpful. Happy diving everyone.
