You can order a new card online as long as you meet the minimum age requirement of 15-years or older, which means you’ll no longer have age-related restrictions while scuba diving. When you choose your junior certification to be replaced, the system will automatically produce the upgraded card should you meet the minimum age requirement. View the Scuba Certifications for Children and Teenagers page on for information on PADI Junior Diver certifications or contact your local PADI Dive Center or Resort.
