I get asked all the time about Open Water instruction, by people from all over the PNW. I didn't do my training here locally and it was also a long time ago, so you could say that I'm "out of the loop".
Would any of you more recently certified OW/AOW/Rescue divers please offer a recommendation, based on your own personal experience, please?
Basically it would be helpful to know:
1) Instructor's name
2) Shop they're with (or if they're independent, what area(s) they typically serve)
3) General satisfaction level with the quality of instruction you received and total price you paid thru the end of your certification
*please don't bash the person or shop here if you didn't like your course, I'm looking specifically for positive recommendations. IF you feel compelled to let me know about a negative experience please do it through PM as I don't want this to turn into a wall of shame thread.
These prospective OW/AOW students and I thank you in advance for any recommendations!
