We operate a dive boat and a PADI dive center. Recently, we have seen more and more beginner divers who seem to have received no training whatsoever. This is a huge burden on our staff and compromises safety for properly trained divers in the group. Due to safety concerns, we have announced that we will not teach the Scuba Diver course and not accept boat divers who only have the Scuba Diver C-card.
