    I just got my SSI AOW this year (and Master Diver a month later). They still do that. I don't have a physical card, but on the "back side" of the digital card is a light blue box with the 4 or 5 classes that qualified me for the recognition. I would imagine that anyone who requires a PADI AOW or equivalent to do a certain dive would be looking specifically for the deep and maybe for UW nav, which are the two required specialties. If you show an SSI AOW recognition card, first they might laugh at you, then they might want to see how you earned it or see your deep/nav cards if those two aren't written on your AOW card. My card has Perfect Buoyancy, Deep, Wreck, and EANx because those were the first four SSI classes I took.
