i would rather fail on my own merit…

…than to succeed because i’m a better liar than my competition.

for the more than twelve years i’ve been teaching scuba on this island this shop has always advertised that our classes are no bigger than four students per class. and we’ve kept to our word.

sometimes we even teach classes of only one or two.

this enables us to teach complete classes, leaving nothing out, producing qualified (not just certified) divers who know how to take care of themselves in the water.

it seems that the east end shops are now singing our song.

“no more than four students to a class!”

it has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

except that once you pay, you still have to wait until the class fills up to 10 or 12 students before you start.

they must be using a different math than the math i learned.

that would explain a lot.

i handle my IDCs the same way this school handles its open water classes.

my current IDC is a class of one.

i teach small classes. (no factories, no cattle cars)

i take the extra time to remediate theory and make sure you know your Standards and Procedures. (we’re in this together)

preparation for life after the IE. (unless you’re just in this for the party you’re going to need to know how to survive in this business. learn from someone who’s been there and done that.)

be prepared. be confident.

turn left off the dock.
