    0-24 dives is definitely too few to be diving a rebreather!

    Just checked his student record with padi. It's there. Should be no issue if he calls up to order a replacement card.

    maybe he forgot to update his divecount? Otherwise I agree - it's odd.

    click Information in his profile: I don't put a lot of faith in dive counts - mine is I'm a Fish because I like that - not that I have a dive count that numerically warrants it.

    Getting new PADI card can be good, if only because you can use a new photo. Heh

    but that won't change the instructor name which is the crux of the question

    As have I! But I still had a much better photo to attach. The new cards no sooner arrived than the old cards turned up. LOL
