Do you believe divers when they make statements like... I could be a dive instructor but i choose NOT to become an instructor. Or, I’m every bit as good a diver as any instructor.

[Choose #3] Depends. I’ve seen instructors who shouldn’t have been, and others who instructed well despite not having credentials.

[Choose #3] It’s possible that they could easily be knowledgable enough, but I have a rule of not believing most things people just say.

[Choose #4] Being a good experienced diver and being an instructor are really two different things with different training and skills.

[Choose #3] Some "instructors" just zipped through all the classes and really don’t have enough real experience to be good instructors

[Choose #3] Being a Good Diver has nothinging to do with being an instructor. An instructors value is not only in his/her diving ability but in their ability torelate that information to the student.
