Forget about PADI courses--there's a better way to learn...

Hi Sybille. Why does anybody need a "license to learn"? As you said, "we will actually turn into competent divers through experience". Where I grew up, there was no swimming school, no boat captain school, no fishing school and no scuba diving school. All of those skills were handed down to the young ones who were eager to learn from the older ones. There's no better way to learn and I would not trade my experience for a hundred thousand PADI C-Cards.
