LOL. The new PADI courses are a joke in my opinion. Its all home study then show up for your pool sessions a beach dive or 2 and a boat, boom your certified. The only courses I really learned something in aside from open water was wreck, nitrox, and rescue.. Rescue was great. As for the boat diving cert, bouancy control cert, ect. These are things you should already know or be learning on your own after open water. To charge a course fee for them is criminal especially at PADI rates. I do want to get my Dive Master. I think that program has a lot to offer in terms of continued education if you get a good instructor.
