    Perhaps you can do your instructor training in Australia. The conditions are perfect on the Great Barrier Reef, and you only need 100 dives to qualify I believe. There are many tourists that are DiveMasters after 60 dives.

    For the good and bad reasons, that fits also both countries in Iberia!

    Do your weight check with a near-empty tank.

    Dude srsly? we also dive with clogs on our feet instead of fins.
    And we don't use scuba tanks but a hollowed out piece of cheese on our backs.

    I currently live in Cape Verde. So all my dives are in the Atlantic ocean.

    Practically speaking, that is difficult. I do not have my personal compressor so I can only do it at the end of a dive.

    Why is that difficult?

    Do your buoyancy check at the beginning with a full tank. Add the weight of the gas in that tank.

    No, sorry, do your weight check at the end of your dive with a cylinder near your reserve volume and no gas in your BC. You should be able to easily maintain your safety or deco stop and then be able to make a controlled ascent to the surface.

    Ok, how much weight do you take on that dive you just finished then?
