Two rules of diving, that you should never forget, and they apply to life as well.

Always breath and never hold your breath.

Stop think and act.

Have a great time in class, and after you are certified.

Have fun. After you finish this class seriously consider taking some more advanced ones. As well as working with some one who can teach you the finer points of bouyancy control.

Of course we haven't heard back for him since. I hope he survived that second lesson. :-)

Well I received my certification today in Montego Bay Jamaica. Had a great two days to do the open dives and look forward to many good times.

What Bill said +1

As you build time absolutely get your Advanced Certification. Personally, I would also strongly recommend getting your Rescue Diver Cert. It is really a good course and will teach you a lot about stress and panic.

I first learned to dive in 1965, have well over 3500 dives and I still enjoy it today as much as I did the very first time.

I do plan to do more training (must be the pilot in me) and obtain some advanced certifications. Doing more training is a good way to pass the cold Ohio winters!

Plan your dive, dive your plan. Consider purchasing and reading the NOAA Diving Manual. Learn to use and understand the Repetitive Dive Tables. Scuba diving is a lot of fun, but I found that Free Diving is more enjoyable (less gear to have to lug around and keep up with). Everything you really want to see is in less than 40' of water anyway.
