Diving Credentials and Qualifications

This page serves as a sort of resume of my diving career. I'm quite active with my hobby and instruct on a semi-professional basis. What does semi-professional mean in this sense? It means that I'm quite active in the diving industry, but am not working in on a full-time basis. It means that I am far more active than most "hobby instructors". For me, diving is something between a hobby and a profession. When asked I usually describe it as my "hobby profession".
