Where do you see yourself within 5 years of the diving industry?

I would like to become a technical instructor as I have become a technical diver myself last year. I would also like to become a re-breather diver.

One step at a time.

Have you ever failed a student during a course?

I never failed a student, If a student is struggling with any skills, buoyancy or confidence we slow down, jump back a few steps or invite them back another day for extra tuition until they get it right so I know they are ready to be certified
