AG is kicking off his new Unified Team Diving agency (http://www.unifiedteamdiving.com) with IDC/IE/Crossover training in San Diego over the next 9 days, December 6 - 14, 2008.
Anyone want to talk about why you are crossing over to the UTD? For example, do you plan to offer NAUI Tech and UTD cards for the same class, or just UTD? What do the UTD/DIR groups think? Most of the west coast DIR groups have a very short approved instructor list... like some/all GUE + AG + some local instructor.
Personally, I'm hoping that the new UTD agency will provide SDUE with more qualified instructors for recreational and technical. We need more DIR/UTD-oriented OW/recreational instructors and more AG-style tech with ratio deco, etc.
I'm going to try to sneak away and help shot video, etc. during the IDC.
