I was in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos this past summer at a Beaches resort. I proudly presented the dive shop my NAUI OW card and the guy looked at me puzzled. He said the card means nothing without an individual certification number on it. Is this true? And if so, why does my C-card not have a certification number on it?

Luckily, I had printed my PADI AOW temporary card before I went on vacation so I was able to dive. PADI has individual certification numbers but NAUI does not. Seems odd.
