"Well, this is a good thing that you and I have done. Iím sure there will be other Instructors later that this will help. Thanks again for bringing all of this to our attention." [D.W. and Todd convinced PADI that instructors with only Supervising Instructor insurance should still be able to teach non-diving courses. The change in policy was effective immediately.]

"I think a great job was done to offer a variety of options. The efforts made to modify the schedule as a result of Sunday's weather were tremendous and greatly appreciated." [Sunday's dives had been canceled due to stormy seas, so we went hiking on Sunday, and Todd worked with the dive center to reschedule the missed dives for later in the week.]

"The log sheets just arrived. I really like the format. Thanks for the great service." [We provided 4-hour turnaround service and overnighted our dive log pages so the customer would have them before leaving for his dive vacation the next day.]

"One thing I really appreciate about you Todd is the fact that you are so confident in your teaching abilities that you will give a money back refund if not satisfied - I dare say that you've never had to refund any money."

"I was thrilled with your teaching style and skill. I appreciated the way you handled situations that we did well and those done not so well.
