    I did maintain my membership for the first two years paid dues and insurance as a non teaching instructor. Then after those two didn’t do anything. I had gotten out of the navy moved to nc and didn’t have much feel on the diving scene. I finally looked into it more cause we are going on a big trip and wanted to get my daughter certified. Then out of the blue got an email from PADI with the offer to get back in teaching status with just an online course. I fighurd it would have been much worse I had been told I would have to get with a cd to get back and that it was about 800. The whole thing cost 500 but that included 18 dues. The online update was easy read the last four years of quarterly updates and do the 2017 online forum and then a 25 question test that was open book. The wala back to teaching status. Now I wonder if it was a one time thing or if they will continue with the program. I am hoping to get back to teaching a bit but I slowed way down really gut befor I got out of the navy and couldn’t justify the cost
