A note about Fundies... It's an excellent course, can't recommend it more highly. But... You need to be ready to take the course, which is why I guess they've split it into a two parter. When I did it, I didn't have the core skills (buoyancy, finning, trim), so found it very difficult and frustrating. Just being able to be motionless in the water is probably one of the hardest dive skills to master. I didn't have that, so didn't pass. Although that's moot as the skills learned on the course I use every time I dive. If ever one comes up, do take a GUE experience day (maybe it's renamed nowadays). That's the day where they show you what a diver should dive like -- and it's nothing like a DiveMaster -- but please ask the instructor to demonstrate the 'buddah' GUE's rarely openly on forums these days, but there is a faecesbook presence somewhere.
