    The issue here - IMHO - is that the instructor moved the wife to HSA from PADI without their knowledge/approval and without giving her the chance to redo the skills she had an issue with... Which people without disabilities have issues with, too. And clearly was being sneaky about it if he asked for the PADI Materials back! What the heck?

    The point is that the instructor never mentioned HSA, she signed up for a PADI cert, used the PADI material, watched the PADI DVD, did the PADI dives, and took the PADI exam. He told her she passed and the first thing we knew about HSA was getting their card in the mail.
