    Some agencies have a part of the debrief where they're meant to sign students log and vice versa to get in the habit of doing it.

    I count training days as 1 dive and have students sign my book.

    As a divemaster, I've always done it. Why not do it?

    I'd agree... why not. Probably more challenging dives than most they do for fun.

    Always, and why. For several reasons:

    First, it's a dive and I log all my dives......:D

    Second, we tell the students to log thier dives... so lead by example...;)

    Third, my wife has all the students sign her log and they seem to get a kick out of it...:rofl3:

    Fourth, bottom time is bottom time no matter how you get it.....:11:

    If it counts as a dive for the student why wouldn't it count as a dive for me:confused:
    Seriously I always count my morning session as a single long extended dive, no mater how many times I go up and down with groups of students. I then count the afternoon session as a second dive that day.

    Why would an instructor not log them?

    Not only do I log my dives with students, I have them sign it, and I list what we saw and did on the dives. I make the students do the same in their log books. Heck, I even have some sea critter stamps that I let my students decorate their log books with (made by justleesa!).
