I don’t think GUE or IANTD or other technical agencies are "better" than recreational (PADI FFESSM etc) but they are there to provide a different level of training for different types of diving. Divinhg is not a competition it is a hobby where you can enjoy the underwater world in a way that you find pleasurable. Some people will want to dive reef sites with wildlife and are happy at 10-20m in clear water, some will want to dive the Donator, the Togo or the Rubis and need to dive deeper, some will want to visit the Lot and dive the caves. Some are greedy like me and want everything!

Training is not about what is best or which agency is best, it is about giving you the knowledge and skills you need for what you want to do. The more experience you have – the more dives you do – the more you will want to see new things and dive new places. More diving is always better than more training.I know there are other agency, such as TDI, IANTD, etc. world j gastrointestinal oncol impact factor I can have a look at them. For GUE, there are centers arround in Europe, or even in Red Sea, I’m no worried about that.

Regarding this specific sentence "More diving is always better than more training" i can’t say I agree. I think we’re never trained enough when the unexpected appears. I always practiced sport, and we practice, practice, practice.. Diving is a hobby for lot of people, but I don’t think it’s the good approach.I’ve come across too many divers with spectacular qualifications and dreadful practice. I did a liveaboard in Turkey with a group of 12 divers from a PADI Chapter who were boasting about their level of qualification and when I looked at the number of dives they’d done, every single one must have been a dive for some qualification or other. I had done more dives than the entire party of 12 put together. tropico 5 power plant Training only really prepares you for the conditions that you encounter in your training. Experience builds on that training. It is very easy to become complacent with impressive qualifications.

By all means keep on with more advanced training to extend your skills but make sure that you consolidate those skills with plenty of experience dives before you move on. There is a tendency among many new divers to want to do a dash for depth. When I started diving many years ago, another name (which was coined by Cousteau) for Nitrogen Narcosis was Rapture of the Deep. My original instructor used to say that far more dangerous than Rapture of the Deep was Rapture of the Depth Gauge.

My thinking was to start ‘the right way’ asap, without waiting to be 3***, in order to be experienced in the use of DIR-like setting, and not to restart from scratch with bad habits. ….If you want to dive with a GUE equipment configuration then you should do GUE Fundamentals as soon as you have the time, money, equipment and opportunity. This configuration is not the "right" way and others are not the "wrong" way. j gastrointest surg GUE is a very good system but it is not the only good way to dive. The big advantage of GUE is everyone agrees about the equipment and the dive priorities.

A lot of the equipment configuration and the "good habits" can be found in other training organisations such as IANTD or TDI. With non-GUE instructors I think you will find they can be more varied in their attitude and their ability, GUE is strict about it’s protocols and this is why many people are attracted to it. A good technical instructor from any background will be familiar with the GUE system and work with it.

You can practice skills with another diver who is dedicated like you and has the same ideas about how to handle situations. But please don’t think you must spend many hours doing these skills (S-Drills). My wife and I do a short skills practice when there is a little gas left at the end of the dive and the opportunity comes up – share gas or switch regulators for example. It is more important to do this for a short time, but frequently than to do it at the expense of enjoying the dive. If you can find someone to dive with regularly that wants to do a S-Drill for a minute or two each dive this will give you all the practice you need.

Wanting to be a good diver is the right way to think. gas definition science Looking at GUE is a good place to start, but you must be realistic about the people you will dive with. If you are still N2 and the dive operator puts a Moniteur with you the chances are they will not be GUE or even understand the system. They might not be familiar with the 2.1m primary hose for example. gas key staking Some of the people that I dived with in France many years ago were really quite bad. For that reason I would say do try to get to N3 if you are diving in France – it is a real advantage.

By practicing, I’m not takling about aquiring more certification. I’m just saying, repeating again and again the same exercise in order to be able to do it without thinking about it when needed.What causes real problems is when something comes up that you haven’t practised. This is where complacency becomes dangerous – feeling confident that you can handle whatever situation comes up can induce a diver to take risks. Experience is built up not by simply repeating the same things but by doing different things within your level of competence and extending your skills steadily before you move on to more challenging diving.

You need to be able to think when you have problems, not panic. I’ll give you an example. Almost 50 years ago, I descended to a wreck of a plane off Scotland in about 40M. la gas prices 2016 My mask wouldn’t stop leaking and I pulled it around a bit to try and reseat it. This was in the days of neoprene skirts which didn’t seal very well and drain valves in the bottom of the mask were common. The skirt on my mask ripped across the top and no amount of trying to clear it was effective and I lost all vision. This was in the days before buoyancy compensators and we used to have to fin to get to the surface – but which way? I had no idea where my buddy was or if he had seen my predicament. Weight belts were so small that dropping it wouldn’t have had much effect at that depth. I realised that I had a lanyard on my knife so I took it out and held it by the lanyard, finning in the other direction to which it was hanging. Having only just got down there, I managed to surface OK without any problems with DCS. This is not the sort of incident I had trained for so had to devise a remedy on the fly. gas city indiana newspaper Fortunately, that was one of only three scary incidents I’ve had in over 3500 dives in the past 53 years. These days, equipment is much more sophisticated and provides far better backup and redundancy but don’t assume that there aren’t situations that won’t arise and bite you in the bum!

And yep, as you say, all the gear set-up and commercial courses will be made regarding monney and time. N3 and advance Nitrox diver are a requirements before anything more I think.
