“When I certify a student at any level of diving, I ask myself if that person is capable of self-rescue and capable of buddy-rescue in conditions similar to or perhaps worse those of their certification level. I can sign them off on their behavior and performance at a given level, but must rely on them to continue to make good choices in the future.”
Jill Heinerth, The Essentials of Cave Diving: The latest techniques, equipment and practices for scuba diving in caves and caverns using open circuit, side mount and rebreathers.
