  • Downloadable reports for digital products in each status.
  • Digital codes scoreboard for a quick reference of your available codes.

PADI Online Business Service #5 – DiveChek™ Online

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

divechekYou may be familiar with the scenario where a diver comes to your Dive Center or Resort and asks to book onto their next PADI course, or simply enjoy the local diving on their holiday. But there’s a problem: they’ve lost or forgotten to bring their PADI certification card to prove their current rating.

The good news is that there’s a simple alternative. DiveChek™ Online is a useful, time-saving tool which enables you to search for your customer’s certification history and the dates they completed the training (and even which PADI Pro and Dive Center they trained with).

By locating and verifying the diver’s details directly via the PADI Pros’ Site, you’ll be able to get instant confirmation – 24/7 – of their PADI certification status. They won’t need to wait for a replacement card to arrive and you won’t need to spend time calling your local PADI office for verification – keeping your customers happy, and your business efficient.

Accessing the DiveChek™ Online tool is easy – just visit the PADI Pros’ Site and click on Online Services > DiveChek. Enter your customer’s full name and date of birth and click “Run Report” to view the results.divechek-example

Note: DiveChek™ Online will not check Professional level certifications. To verify the status of a PADI Professional, you can use the ProChek tool instead.
