Do you get a C card for PADI enriched air ?

    I just realised now that the only thing I received from the dive shop is the paper for the enriched air dive.

    But am I supposed to receive a c card as well ? I am worried that I may not be able to get enriched air without the card.

    Yes. You should receive a plastic card in the mail from PADI. Usually within 2 weeks. If you know your cert number, search for it on the PADI website.

    Unlikely. When they submitted your PIC, (this is a PADI shop, correct?), the card is automatically issued by PADI. The shop gets an email with a temp card, as do you. Go online and look yourself up at PADI. Info about your cert should be there.

    I didn’t get a PIC I think they simply forgot, my cert is not online and it was more than a month ago.

    I’ll email them.

    Standards Violation. Go to the store and let them know that you want proof of submission this time. If they give you a hard time, call PADI. You will win. They will lose.

    you can check if EAN certificationwas ever filed with PADI by just going to PADI site and go to replacement card section- go as far as entering your name and date of birth- and list of your PADI certs. will come up- PADI | The Way the World Learns to Dive®
