    ScubaBoard did more for my diving than any class. More scenarios. More what-ifs. Better analysis. More options.

    A Technical pass in GUE Fundamentals requires some Rescue skills and drills. That may be what AJ is referring to. It's not required for...

    Never took rescue, but I'm another ex-lifeguard so I've been pretty outward focused from the start. Just like lifeguarding, I think...

    Rescue course is not about skill or technique on diving. Different ball game.

    I don't really think it was a big turning point for me. I think the decision to do the DM course was probably that. I took Rescue after...
