Higher certifications may not make you a better diver, however, more stringent and demanding entry-level training standards will definitely increase the probability that certified beginners will dive safer with or without professional dive guides. Conversely, reducing entry-level training standards increases the probability that beginners will be injured or killed scuba diving. I agree that the PADI Scuba Diver course is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
