MHK posted, in part: "This is a general overview and the biggest problem I have seen ( and am most fearful of now that PADI has gotten into it ) is that this mentality that tech diving can be done by anyone..."
So, what kind of prerequisites SHOULD there be? What kind of screening process is there now? In this new tech/wreck specialty, what will PADI do to screen -- even assuming litigation exposure is PADI's only concern, which I don't, there would have to be some kind of process beyond the normal set of medical forms, baisc physical tests, and liability waivers. How do you develop a set of standards about who should or shouldn't tech dive?
I have NO plans to do tech (I'm mainly afraid I'd be sitting there decompressing for two hours while the "It's A Small World Song" plays repeatedly in my head), but I'm interested in these answers.
