PADI NITROX Specialty course. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives.

Description

PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course.

Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air nitrox diver.

If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course. Note that in some regions the minimum age is older than 12.

You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional (or required) scuba dives, you’ll:

  • Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
  • Practice analysing oxygen content in your nitrox scuba tank.
  • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.

Equipment

Most modern scuba equipment and dive computers can be used with enriched air nitrox, but your PADI Instructor at Easy Divers will let you know if your gear meets manufacturer recommendations and local requirements.

However, scuba tanks must meet oxygen service standards and be dedicated for use with enriched air. You’ll practice using oxygen analysers and special nitrox cylinder decals. Our PADI Dive Center staff  and Padi Instructor will explain other equipment you may need to enjoy enriched air diving.
