PADI eCard Available on their Mobile App

by | May 16, 2013 | Industry, Technology | 1 comment

PADI recently announced that their mobile application supports downloads of your SCUBA certification card.  How many times have you gotten everything ready for a big dive, you arrive at the dive center, and realize you’ve forgotten your certification card?  While there are a lot of dive locations that aren’t very strict about checking certifications, that is a big no-no and in reality everyone should be asked in order to protect both the divers and the divemaster.  If you don’t want to worry about carrying your card with you anymore, you should check out the PADI app, available for all major platforms, which allows you to store a copy of your card on your phone at all times.  Do it now before you forget!  The PADI app also includes a fantastic directory of dive shops, so you can easily find the closest place to stock up on gear.

    I think $40 for an electronic card is a little expensive though. For that I rather carry the little plastic one in my wallet when I go diving.
