Pappa, it's not so much the Organization training you, but your Instructor that should be the determining factor. You get good instructors and bad one's in every Discipline of Scuba. In my opinion, and I'm old school with Scuba diving - it's Safety FIRST! - NAUI would be the better organization in general to do the course with, however, I say again, it depends on the quality of the particular Instructor. Choose the one with the most experience... Scuba organizations have evolved very much in the last 2 decades into a big marketting machine - bent on sales turnover, rather than Safety of divers as a priority. It all started with PADI (Put Another Dollar In) and SSI followed soon after... NAUI and CMAS have remained pretty much steady in their Safety first approach.

Hope this helps
