    LOL I don't SEE a sarcasm emoji in there, but I'm pretty sure I can hear one... :wink:

    Let's just agree that we both think it's a good thing I am not a CCR instructor... :)

    some are more adept at picking up skills than others but the default must be the ability to respond under stress and task loading - i personally think the pass mark for some courses is too low but there has to be a line somewhere. Im old enough to take personal responsibility to heart and regardless of my certification, I must make those judgement calls.
    'Know thyself'

    I'd advocate for more cross credits on course -eg shooting an SMB and mask clearing when youve already done it 4 courses ago is ridiculous. Spend more time on skill relevant to where your at is more beneficial
