A: Contact your local PADI Dive Shop or Resort directly or you could replace your lost card online A replacement card may be necessary under the following circumstances: Replace Your Dive Certification Card
Your Padi certification card is your passport to fun and adventure. It is your ticket to the underwater world. It allows you to fill tanks, buy or rent equipment and book dive charters. Stores, resorts and operators accept it as verification that you have been trained, passed the tests and requirements, and you are qualified in the techniques of scuba diving.
Most agencies require basically the same information to replace your card, but there are a few differences in procedures. You should become familiar with these and maintain the necessary information in your logbook.
It is also comforting to know that if you lose your card while on vacation, most agencies will verify your certification by phone or fax to the resort or operator. But you will still need to replace your card as soon as you return home. Our dive centre can check the Padi Database for your certification.
If you do a lot of diving and/or travelling, it may be in your best interest to have an extra C-Card in advance for just such emergencies. This could help you avoid the anxiety, lost dive days and additional costs for replacing a card quickly. But if you must replace it “on the fly”, have this information available.
