I got certified in Okinawa, Japan back in '96 and it took 3 weeks of diving and courses just for the first certification.
Four years later some friends of mine here in the states decide to get certified. I later found out they didn't do nearly as much training as I did for the same certification and it only took them a couple of days. When the time came for diving they didn't know anything about anything about safety.
