To whom is your comment directed? If towards me, maybe you would explain why the suggestion of a logical simple solution to an apparent problem would only be in the purview of a moderator. Thanks.

Very surprised about the bad mouthing of n2 the blue. My husband and I were both certified by them and we were very satisfied. The are through and cautious. They take the responsibility of certifying you seriously.

My reaction was that someone didn't get certified so is blaming the teacher instead of self. 😀

I have dove and worked for N2B and the staff and owners are the best.
They are strict on PADI standards, as they should be, and some students just can not handle that or understand why.
I have seen students come in knowing it all and all they want is just the cert card. The rules and physics of diving do not apply to them.
PADI instructors have a big responsibility to teach and train divers before sending them out into the big wet world
Does anyone realize that the instructor may be held responsible for any thing that happens to the diver for years after they have been certified ?
Many a instructor has been sued because the x student did not follow the rules and got them selves killed
I would trust my grand kids with the N2B staff
If you have a issue with N2B or the staff go some place else and learn to dive
We all have personality conflicts with people from time to time
Just move one
And yes I am ad PADI MSDT instructor with many years of diving and teaching experience

The guy that got his balls busted by Underwater Safaris was to blame too.

Your combative/rude style and delivery are very similar to his.

So if a student was LITERALLY one second over on a swim test they should fail because that one second will get them killed someday?

If the student pilot was 1 second slow/below standards at activating the fire suppression system in the aircraft would you want the instructor to let it pass?
That student could some day be setting in the right set on your flight to Miami
Standards are standards and instructors have a big responsibility to make sure they are adhered to by ALL students
You just sound like some one who got their feelings hurt by not passing....You should let it go and move on

one second late in a standardized test = fail

Reminds me of the old saying: For want of a nail, the shoe was lost.....

P.S. I'm a PADI instructor that was certified on Tortola.

I think this thread says much more about you as an instructor than it does about N2theBlue as a dive operator.
For which shop do you work?

I didn't pass? Then how did i get this instructor card in my wallet? Oh. Wait. That's right I didn't have you for an instructor.
Telling someone they have to repeat a skill because of one second is BULL. Your screen name works well for you.

One second? Seriously? It's sounds like you just want to rip people off when you fail someone because of one lousy second. If the skill has a two minute time limit and they do it in two minutes and one second it's not going to make a bit of difference.
You're just a hardass.

Seriously though, which shop?
I suspect PADI's Quality Management Dept might like to know if one of their instructors is disparaging a PADI dive shop for upholding PADI standards.

Some PADI shops fudge on the number of dives. They let their people come up after 20 minutes and go back down during a regular 60 minute dive to get their number of dives faster.
