    Default What agency certified you

    What agency do you hold your c-card through. Some people have multiple c-cards from several agencies,so if you go dive at Peacock what is the agency of the c-card you have on your dash board

    I have several, but the one I put on the dash is CDG (Cave Diving Group of Great Britain). I am also NSS-CDS, NACD, IANTD, YMCA, TDI, and PADI. I was a cave instructor for NSS-CDS, YMCA, and a cavern instructor for PADI. As a CDG qualified diver, I can teach for them now.

    Assuming you're talking highest level of cert?
    I have something from NSS-CDS, NACD, IANTD, ABC, TDI, and PADI.

    I assumed that Kelly meant "full" cave, or at least your highest cave diving certification. My cave cert is NSS-CDS, but I also have various certifications from NACD, TDI, and PADI.

    NSS-CDS and NACD. I keep my CDS card into wallet so that goes on the dash.

    It's not the years in your life that matter, but the life in your years.

    My instructor did my full cave as a dual certification with NACD, and TDI. The NACD card is what I voted, and what I put on the dash.

    At 50 dives, I thought I had this diving thing figured out. At 100 dives, I realized how wrong I was at 50.

    I'd be curious to see how the distribution scaled by certification date. For those that got certified 15 years ago or so, there were fewer certifying agencies.
