I'm looking to get into tech diving, but I most definitely do not want to take the PADI courses. I live in Portland, Oregon so I'd like some place not too far away. I also just graduated from college, so money is relatively tight, so I don't want to be forced to buy gear, rental is preferred while training. I've been an instructor for 5 years and can spot a bad one from a mile away. Any recommendations would be great.
