    Specialty Diver is an SSI pat on the back for completing any 2 certs after OW. It does not reflect anything about which Nitrox course you took.

    That is your SDI card, no? This is the SSI forum. Different rules.

    You show Nitrox SSI in the first picture but the Specialty Diver card is SDI. That’s 2 different cards.

    this topic came up recently in a conversation i had so it reminded me of this thread. curious if you were ever going to share what you discovered after your discussion with SSI. or did i miss your response somewhere ?

    I haven't thought about this in a bit, but it's still certainly relevant.
    After a discussion with SSI, it was explained to me the 32% was asked for and used by live aboard operations who teach classes onboard where 32% is the only thing available.

    The previous discussions on book work, test score, etc, not correct.
    In fact the last chapter is about planning your dive and using a computer.
