Education Forum - Mission and Guidelines

Due to the fact that we frequently have questions regarding training, skills and instruction spread across the site, we've decided to give these postings a home on NWDC.

Discussion about equipment can still take place over at Gear Central, but if you'd like to ask questions about the use of that gear in the water or about how to pursue further instruction from your LDS or a private instructor in the area, here's the place to ask.

Now, there are a few ground rules here, designed to benefit the student/seeker of wisdom:

1) No unsolicited advice or advertisement for paid instruction. Please, no posts for classes or otherwise paid instruction by any instructor or shop affiliated with any certifying agency. Some posts, such as safety-related education (DAN, CPR, etc.) and/or free seminars may be okay. If in doubt, please contact a moderator before posting.

2) Present balanced information as fairly as possible. If you subscribe to a particular school of thought or certifying agency, don't present a holier-than-thou attitude about it here. We're here to provide as much information to the person asking the question as possible, so that they can make a wise decision for themselves. Unabashed persuasion is not welcome.

3) Remember your roots. Consider that all of us were wet behind the ears (get it?!) at one point, so reply with patience and understanding that some questions might have very obvious answers to some of us now - but at one point, we all wondered about the same things.

This forum is to be wholly for the benefit of the person seeking information and guidance from those who have more experience. It is the responsibility of the senior divers here to bend to the needs of the newbies with consideration and open-mindedness.

Did I miss anything?

Shouldn't the zombies be diving? Or at least underwater (since they obviously don't need gear to stay alive, not being alive...) :popcorn:

One of the creepiest parts of World War Z was the part where the guys in the submarine were sitting on the bottom of the ocean, listening to the sounds of all the zombies crawling over the outside of the sub. *shudder*

So, speaking of WWZ, have you all seen the teaser trailer for the movie yet? Unfortunately, it looks nothing like the book =/
Thankfully we still have The Walking Dead though.
