I was certified in 1989, but after years of moving and losing my ID, I was able to go to and with minimal information required about myself, I was able to print out a temporary ID and choose from several designs, uploading my photo, and certification date and other pertinent info on the credit card-style one they send soon after. I can’t recall the fee, but it was less than $25.

Yup. I did the same thing as a surprise Christmas present for my father-in-law who hadn’t been diving in 20 years. Even though his c-card was well before computer records PADI had most of his old information updated. Well, all but his certification date. It defaulted to his birthdate. So he now gets to joke that he’s been diving since birth!
