    That's the thing in diving, things happen..when the roof comes down on you wish...or maybe you wished..there are plenty plenty of examples of well planned dives that turn into a disaster..nevertheless, I agree,...lots of accidents and incidents happen due to bad planning etc..

    I would say MOST accidents are caused by poor attention to detail, including the planning portion.

    I use confidence builders in my OW classes. Buddy breathing for 50 meters is a great one. When I became an instructor, there were two of us when one set of gear (1 mask, 1 set of fins & 1 scuba unit). We changed gear at one end while buddy breathing, buddy breathed to the other end, changed gear again and then buddy breathed all the way back. During a DiveHeart training session, two of us buddy breathed on a full face mask. We did OK until we started laughing.

    The ISE philosophy is aimed at exploration diving (not only hardcore deep and cave but also for people that really want to do something independently, maybe only in 6 meters of water), in exploration things do happen, aside of what you already mentioned (detail, planning), we believe that kick ass skills and great in water comfort will make you a better, safer diver...and..it is also fun..the whole process of teaching and developing your skills and comfort level ;-) and in the end..fun is also important..thats why we dive..;-)

    The exercise serves the same purpose as harassment dives in the military. It's all about building self-confidence and panic resistance.

    +1 looks like a good drill for stress inoculation.
