but I didn’t even know it required certification until a few years ago. I figured that’d be no big deal…I’ve been through this kind of thing a few times before.
But I learned from a few certified friends what the training is like, and to be honest, it kind of scares me! To think that if you mess up, your ear drums or lungs could…well, “burst,” as they put it. Eeeeek. It is way more complicated than I imagined. However, most of them find it relaxing once they are actually in the water.
It would definitely be a challenge. Plus, it’s kind of expensive. If I go to Jamaica this winter, I’ll probably take care of it there.
