    Sounds pretty much like mandatory minimums to me but if you want to quibble that is fine. And, important to note that WRSTC does not set the standards for every single PADI course, they only have guidance posted for the major classes. PADI does have some latitude with their own course standards, especially for specialties.

    In areas with limited or no reception, I would definitely recommend taking a screenshot of your PADI e-cards. Our recent experience in French Polynesia is that, even if you have "Downloaded" the PADI e-cards on the app, if you still have some cellular reception (but not enough to load anything at all), the app will display a continuous turning circle and not allow you to switch to Downloaded from All e-cards.

    One quick way around this is to turn your wifi/cellular service off completely by switching to Airplane Mode, and the app will stop thinking/loading and allow you to display your Downloaded cards.
