Something to read before you attempt to dive beyond your training.

A pretty good article of the type that should be required reading for OW, AOW, and beyond classes.

I agree, It should be a required read in cert classes

Good article, and very true one should not dive beyond cert, and certainly should never venture into a cave without training. It’s scary seeing people that do. Thankfully for this girl Edd is a hell of a cave diver, and knows those caves like the back of his hand. He has some interesting stories that are great to hear and provide a learning experience.
