    I looked at the SSI class and for $120 to teach me how to use my computer just didn't make sense to me.
    I have no problem doing a PADI course, I have done a PADI course with no issues. I just did not complete my practical in time. My LDS was selling the class at $180, without any dives. So for 80 bucks I got a nitrox card. If it works great, I got a nitrox card, if it doesn't work then, I will post my experinces on SB so to warn other divers on here that are looking at the class.

    Take it as a quest to see if this site is a scam, if I lose 80 bucks in the process, I feel I did it for a good cause.

    By the Way, looking at PADI site, there are tons of agencies that I have never heard of. Not saying they ain't great courses just saying I never heard of them.

    Ultimately you have to be the judge, but take it from me ... the few bucks are well worth it.

    What was that? The post count before a Mod deleted some posts...?

    If so glad it wasn't closed. :eyebrow:

    I think they kept all of them. Just seeing the 98 bothered me, so I went for the gold.
