In Reply to: Top 10 Reasons Why The Fundamentals Of DIR Class Is A Real AOW Class posted by msblucow on October 29, 2001 at 13:28:31:

10) common sense .... no class needed
9) that's when you use the back up computer
8) unlikely ... but possible
7) buoyancy skills are not exclusive to DIR
6) see 7
5) common sense again what serves my needs is not the latest Halcyon gimmick . simple is better
4) not a problem for backpack divers
3) better to dive without a buddy than a bad one!
2) I'm fluent in ASL, far more standardized than some contrived system.
1) good idea if you can find a good buddy of equivalent skill level. Also a good idea to practice solo emergency procedures. Better to take care of one's self than depend on others.
