PADI dive shops in Hawaii refuse to take a referral from any other certification agency


Prospective student just called to get info on doing my referral program then go to Hawaii to complete cert dives. She was told by a #PADI business that she MUST do PADI elearning. She was lied to! This happens all the time. PADI is a disgrace to the dive industry! #scuba #NAUI

@TDIdivers @SDIdivers @SDITDIERDI @NAUIWorldwide @PADI #myPADI 

PADI, you need to send a corporate email out to dive centers and tell them NOT to lie to prospective students by saying that PADI elearning is the only program students can take.

Now, this student just told me that this shop will ONLY accept a PADI referral. Really? A dive shop that believes that NAUI, SDI, and SSI will not be able to provide equal or better education? Will any dive shops in #Hawaii please confirm that you will turn my business away!

This is very sad! Not only does it sound like they are manipulating the customer to believe that PADI is the only way to go, but if they fail to deliver the level of education others may provide, the customer loses! Any dive shop from any certification agency would be proud to have one of my students.
