Becoming a PADI OWDI can be a personal challenge, it can be a stressful event, tough at some points. My experience with Dive-Careers.com has been clearly rewarding, I got from the team all the help I could need, plus a friendly relationship and a lot of fun. The level of knowledge was very good and the discussions about any subjects always interesting. At the end, you reach your objective because they know their job and how to guide you to your destination.
I put "only" four stars though because of the introduction and welcome (you arrive and you don't know where you are, who is who and where you can put your stuff...), the organization and the lack of information especially before the start of the formation (for example, everyone seemed to discover that having some piece of equipment was compulsory. It was a bit of a mess to get everything for everyone...). The rhythm and explanations were sometimes too fast and sometimes a little bit unclear. It might be inevitable since everything has to be done in two weeks and yes, at the end, you adapt and the job is well done, and you forget about those "details".
I probably removed as well half a star because of the dive center. The team is friendly and helpful, but it's a bit messy, not as clean as I expected and honestly I hated to leave my gear in a wet bag on the floor. Last thing, it's said that in Switzerland, we are slow. It's sometimes true, but eventually, we got rid of the smoke in public areas (last year only though)... but well... I think I was the only non-smoker :)
All in all, my experience has been excellent, efficient and fun. And I have to admit I miss those guys already... thank you Mark, Brett and all the Dive-Carrer.com team.
