The PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) 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 diver.
The Enriched Air Diver Specialty course has two main components:
Knowledge development (studied online, independently prior to the first open water dive) to give you the theory behind enriched air diving
2 Open Water Dives - Analyse the content of your enriched air tanks and complete detailed dive planning based on your readings. Configure your dive computers for nitrox diving and away you go!
The course typically takes 1 day to complete.
