    Well, at least they've got their eye on the future with new courses and classes being created. Attach10583_20180424_095852.jpg

    BoulderJohn summed up my points perfectly. Sorry, been busy with work, so hadn't gotten back to the site. I don't have the numbers, but I know that it was hurting the shop where I teach. I know that the 3 largest shops in CO, and I believe even more, have left PADI due directly to travel, and to a smaller extent, something to do with direct sales of training to students. I'm not involved in that part, I just know what people have said at our shop.

    I can tell you that the owner of our shop said one of the biggest reasons we became affiliated with SSI is because they are not involved in travel; they leave that to the shop.
