    Is there a way to search a diver using their certification number instead of their first, middle, last names and DOB?

    You might try the Online Processing Center and go to the bottom of the page for Student Lookup, as though they're a referral. I don't know what result you'd get back, though.
    But gosh, how can you know their number but not their name?

    I know their name... but not necessarily their middle name AND Date of Birth, which are also required to search someone.
    If they give me a cert card for one thing but they have others it's easier to put in the cert number than to have to ask for their DoB.

    Just tried my cert # in the Online Processing Center - no records found, lol!
    Guess that won't work. Sorry!

    I looked up a student using their cert ID number in the online processing last week under the student processing section (the option above typing in all their info and uploading a pic.)

    I had their confirmation email from a previous cert including the # and didn't have their DOB handy when processing their next cert. Worked for me.

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    I think the student search in the online processing is only for students that are registered for online (eLearning / Touch) classes.

    I still haven't found a way to do a reverse look-up.

    That's understating it, but yes.

    Why should PADI bother to improve?
    They own 80% of the market.
