I have been a PADI certified diver for a little while now and have around 50 or 60 dives logged and most of the problems I have encountered have been since I started diving in the US and none of them were PADI divers. The worst one was someone certified by a company called SSA or SSI im not sure which and one of the others was a GUE diver. Ive had to deal with panic attacks, people afraid of getting lost (thats a real nice one), people surfacing to learn their directions because SSI doesnt teach compasses I guess, unfortunately I havent been too satisfied with the level of training given in the US.
