"For example a PADI mask R & R generally involves the student sitting on their knees then flooding and clearing, then R & R.. The GUE class would have the instructor taking the mask off when the student least expects it, and then requiring the student maintain proper trim, bouyancy and then a controlled ascent absent a mask.."
Not all padi instructors are like that. I hired an instructor (Padi) to show me the ropes with a dry suit. BTW, I didn't want the c-card and I didn't get one I just wanted the knowledge. I had to hand him my mask for a minute or so while maintaining buoyancy. If you don't believe me I'll give you his name, you know him.
