The question is: This being the first night dive for which the diver was not trained, did the dive buddy cover all the required information, what is differnt about a night dive Vs a day dive and conduct an assesment (test) of some kind to ensure the information was received, properly catalouged and understood by the recepient. In short conduct training.
Personally, I am reluctant to take someone who has not been trained on night dives out on their first one. I have done it, but only after careful consideration and with a diver I had been out with before to ensure they were very comfortable with their diving and equipment.
