Blame it on John Cronin, the father of dumbing down diver education...

John Cronin has done more damage to the diving community than anyone else with the possible exception of Peter Bennett. The PADI Scuba Diver course is classic Cronin. No doubt it will make money because there are always people who go for the least line of resistance.  So Cronin "put another dollar in" but "took more safety out" of entry-level diver training.  I certainly agree with Cyber Diver that the PADI Scuba Diver course is an entry-level course and those who have said "supervision is no substitute for adequate training".
