Let's bash PADI...

First off. Can only find 2 SSI dive schools in Cairns . One is a small Japanese operation and the other is still teaching PADI courses as well as SSI. Now dont get me wrong I like to bash PADI as much as the next person but what we are talking about here is the PADI Scuba Diver Cert, right. Now we have been teaching resort courses for years, NAUI have their Passport Diver , SSI bought into that as well. SDI have a one day Scuba Discovery Program and so on. So why not PADI. I would rather lead a small group of PADI Scuba Divers than look after a bunch of PADI or SSI (same thing in my book)open water divers.At least with the Scuba Divers you would only take a small group and you are in controll of them . I do however think that PADI should be a little more upfrount with their numbers of certifications , dont include Scuba Divers or NAUI ( Still around in Aus by the way) and SSI could put up their numbers of Passport Divers and so on. PADI may not look so big then.
