Where is my logbook?

Monday, September 28th, 2015

“Where is my logbook?”

Is this the first question you ask yourself when you are preparing to go diving? As a PADI Pro, perhaps it’s the first question your customers ask themselves after the meet and greet? Despite putting them in a ‘safe place’, our logbooks and certification cards have a tendency to disappear – especially after a long break from diving over the winter or between holidays.

To help avoid frantic searches, here’s 5 tips to help you – and your customers – keep hold of this essential diving accessory:

#1 – Logbook Binders

PADI training logbooks have three punch-holes for a reason: so that they can be stored safely in the PADI logbook binder. Get your students into the good habit of using the binder for storing their logbook and a pen so they are ready to log their dives at any time. Plus, in the front and back are spaces to store certification cards and the RDP.

2 – Logbook Pages and Card Holders

More experienced divers (including PADI Pros) who want to log their recreational dives can also add the red logbook or refill pages to the logbook binder (which also comes with three punch holes for this purpose). If you need more storage for certification cards you can get vinyl card holders, keeping everything tidy and safe in one place.

#3 – PADI eCards

Another possibility is to get an eCard. With an electronic certification card (eCard) on their mobile device, students can easily have their certification verified by any PADI Instructor or PADI Dive Center they are planning to dive with.

PADI eCards are stored in the PADI App so your students won’t need to worry about losing or forgetting their plastic certification card, and will be prepared for any impromptu diving opportunities whilst travelling.

PADI Open Water Diver students get an eCard for free for 30 days, after which time they can easily purchase one should they wish to. Renewed PADI Pros get pro-level eCards included as part of their membership benefits.

#4 – Digital Logbooks

Don’t forget, there’s also the option to log dives digitally via the PADI App and ScubaEarth. Just download the PADI App and show your student how easy it is to log their PADI Open Water Diver training dives, and recreational dives – straight from their mobile device.

#5 – Keep Diving!

But the best tip is… don’t have a break! Keep diving! Don’t give your logbook the chance to disappear into the depths of your cupboards. Give your divers the opportunity to join you for fun dives, continued education or diving holidays. Keep them involved with socials and local events. You could even run a “logbook of the year” competition! No more lost logbooks for you and your divers!
