Instructor proficiency? You're banging on a different nail Jason...

Think about this way.  Even the world's best pilot instructor cannot fly a training airplane that has design flaws which cause the wings to fall off in mid-air.  As others have already pointed out, the PADI Scuba Diver course is fundmentally flawed because it substitutes supervision for thorough training in buoyancy control, ascent rates, safety stops, emergency preparedness etc.  That is primarily PADI's fault, however, PADI dive shops and PADI instructors who sell the course must also be held accountable for promoting "trust me" dives and subjecting novice divers to unacceptable risks.
