What's your current level of dive certification, and have you considered getting further training (if possible)?

Advanced Open Water - eventually i'd like to take stress and rescue but i don't know if i'd want to become an instructor, too busy... though being a dive master would be cool...

Rescue Diver, Nitrox, AAUS Science Diver

I personally do not want a DM or instructor level certification because I'm concerned it would add liability in larger groups or on dive tours. I prefer to operate with my trusted buddy and not add in unknown divers if I can help it.

I am currently a Padi Rescue Diver. I also have several DAN emergency first aid certifications including Dive Emergency Specialist, Dive Emergency Management Provider, First Aid for Hazardous Marine Injuries.

My intent is to be prepared to use my training but prefer to leave professional work to professional divers.

I'm a very observant guy and I sometimes will notice things that could be improved upon. I cost up to the dive master and whisper in his or her ear.

I will help any buddy. Quickly get up to speed to make a pleasant safe dive.

AOW and Nitrox. My husband and I keep saying that we are going to get our Rescue Diver certification. I hope we never need it, but would like to have it. I don't have much desire to go much further than that.

Rescue is a very rewarding class, I think it was the most enjoyable class I have taken. Can be physically taxing tho. I had great instructors.....
