I once did a course that barely met standards,but I knew what I was getting into and I wanted the card.

Ian is really just a card collector........he has more dang cards than most of us together....... :-)

I was about to say I dont have that many then I added them up and it came to 10 !

(OW,AOW,Rescue,Nitrox,Advanced Nitrox,Deco Procedures,Intro Trimix, Cavern,Intro Cave,Full Cave)

If I really was a card collector I could add a bunch more to that but there is only one more I want.

How many do Y'all have?

Which did you get the most out of? For me it was Adv Nitrox/Deco. Entry to a new world

Which was the toughest? For me Intro Cave. Doing deco dives was one thing.Having a million tons of rock above my head was another.

I have no earthly idea. I don't have a Fundies card. I doubt I'll have one for awhile.

I'm still needing to get my one card, let alone a Fundies card.

Three, OW, AOW and Nitrox.

Hope to go further though but I am not too interested in the tec/wreck route.

Fun diver only.

OW, AOW, Altitude, PPB, Underwater Nav, Deep, Dry Suit

Rescue and Search & Recovery for 2008

My LDS offers an all day Intro to Underwater Photography that includes pool sessions, but I don't think its the specialty.

I donna know the number - lets see

PADI - OW, AOW, Rescue, DM, Night, Dry suit, PPB, Nitrox, Ice, Medic-First Aid (before EFR)

DSAT - Trimix Blender

IANTD - Deep, Adv Nitrox, Normoxic Trimix

NACD - Cavern, Intro, Full Cave

Add in the VIP or stuff I do without cards to go along???

So, that what 17 or 18 cards.

I will say, there are a few more in my future - CCR nitrox, CCR Mix, Sidemount, OC full Trimix.

As for the most useful classes:
OW - Gotta start somewhere
Adv Nitrox/deep - Combined class - best skills class
Cavern/Intro Cave - Did right after Adv Nitrox - In this class, I saw guys who really know how to dive.

I pretty much bought my normoxic trimix card. I had better in water skills than my instructor. (that and my drysuit didn't fall apart during training either). What the heck, it only cost me $250 and a days training.

hmm,
ow, aow, nitrox, dry suit, uw digital photography, rescue
so 6 total.

the only one I want is NAUI master scuba diver but i'll dive for a while before going to the class. Also, GUE-F sounded like fun but they don't take smokers, oh well... i was not going to depart with my upsteam 2nd stage poseidon either :)

Well lets see.. PADI OW,PADI AOW, NAUI Nitrox, and NAUI Advanced Rescue. So that makes 4 and will go tech probably next year. Will end up with 5-6. Don't care about all the dry suit, photo, deep, etc. They are usually a waste of time and money.
