[Choose #3] Price is always a factor, but with open enrollment you get to possibly meet new people that could turn into long time dive buddies

[Choose #2] I’m a one on one kinda person. Also gives better oppertunity to ask what you want, when you want without hogging the instructior.

[Choose #5] It depends upon what and where the course is. Tech diving? I’d go private. Course like my advanced open water? Open

[Choose #3] I prefer the class environment for the interaction factor. You get peoples thoughts that you missed plus more people to work with provides a better experience in the overall dive buddy mentality IMO

[Choose #4] It depends on the course, Instructor and the resources at the instructor disposal. Private should be no other students. 2 or more becomes Semi-private.
