It is a fairly easy process and lots of advantages. I like that they support independent instructors equally to dive ops. IMHO reasonable pricing and fees. The all e-learning requires no inventory as you get your student login codes immediately upon payment and student training records are also completely electronic. I like that snorkels are optional, CESAs are only done in confined water (every dive has only one descent and one safe ascent with safety stop) - no bounce dives for the instructor, and all training is done horizontally.
I'm sure there are other NASE instructors who can add their experiences.
