I agree with you about experience. There is no substitute for experience. Still experience can lead to complacency. People have a tendency to get into routines and stop thinking. This is a huge problem in my particular type of work. Make a mistake and there is huge equipment damages, make a big mistake, someone gets hurt or killed. There is just no room for mistakes. There is no difference with diving. Being able to think for one's self and be self aware of one's ability. Is very important I believe. Something that I thought was lacking in my training. I am one of those people who is self taught and I am constantly learning. Every time I hear of a diving accident. I research it and learn from it. I may modify my technique and/or my equipment due to what I learn. I would never make good DIR diver. I am just to independant and self reliant.

By the way I think most of us realize. That there is a huge history behind this thread ;-) One cannot judge this thread by the posts within, but by the countless previous posts.
