    While I don't have an answer directly from ginnie, I'm surprised people are actually asking this question. My Ginnie pass says cave dpv but I'm fine diving without a dpv. While that sounds like a dumb analogy, it's no different than having a cave ccr card. Cave ccr is your "highest" cert. Ginnie doesn't care if you dive below your cert.

    Nobody that's watching divers at Ginnie is going to tell you you can't dive oc if you're ccr. As long as they see cave on the card you'll be fine.

    Somewhat quaint then, but in today's world, I can see a number of possible issues.

    I think this whole thing can be solved if we can find "the missing card printer." I'll bet one Chicago style pizza on it!

    So just to start trouble.... Why is cave CCR your highest cert? I have done both OC and CCR and OC is a bit less relaxing!

    Look at it from the eyes of a group of nomdivers like Ginnie. You have to be oc first to dive cc. CC in general is more "technical" to the lay person.

    If you don't look at it from the perspective of a diver it's pretty obvious.
