If the certification is the identification of skill mastery, why is there still an obvious lack of ability on the dive sites? This post started a large thread and many interesting points, Jamesy and Brando take a look at both sides of this very deep discussion.

Was not really with you guys on many of your thoughts tonight. You expressed the idea that in order to be a good instructor you had to be a great diver, I’m not sure the skill set of diving and instructing are as interchangeable as you suggest. If I were to follow your idea to natural conclusions than to be a good high school math teacher you would have to be a great and accomplished mathematician. That is simply not true. Those that can’t....teach or as the saying goes. One does not have to be an accomplished tech diver to teach basic OW effectively. Does a professor of business have to be an accomplished businessman, obviously no. Teaching and doing are somewhat different skill sets.
