Extend your bottom time and explore with longer no-decompression limits as you learn to dive with enriched air, unlocking the benefits of nitrox for safer and more flexible underwater adventures.

Continuing Education

PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

The PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver course introduces divers to the advantages of breathing enriched air, a mixture with a higher oxygen content than standard air. This specialized program enhances your diving experience by extending your allowable bottom time, reducing nitrogen absorption, and providing flexibility in dive planning.

Key Components:

  1. Enriched Air Benefits: Understand the benefits of diving with enriched air, including longer no-decompression limits, reduced post-dive fatigue, and the potential for shorter surface intervals between dives.
  2. Nitrox Equipment: Learn how to analyze and label nitrox cylinders, set your dive computer for enriched air diving, and understand the specialized equipment used with enriched air.
  3. Dive Planning: Explore the principles of dive planning with enriched air, including how to calculate maximum operating depths and analyze oxygen exposure limits to ensure safe and enjoyable dives.
  4. Practical Application: Put theory into practice by participating in enriched air dives under the guidance of our experienced PADI instructors. These dives allow you to experience the benefits of nitrox firsthand while applying the knowledge gained in the course.

Flexibility and Safety: Enriched Air Diving offers increased flexibility in dive planning and is particularly beneficial for repetitive diving or multiple dives in a single day. The reduced nitrogen exposure also contributes to safer diving practices.

Prerequisites: To enroll in the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, you must be at least 12 years old and hold a PADI Open Water Diver certification (or equivalent).

Certification and Continued Exploration: Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll receive the PADI Enriched Air Diver certification, allowing you to dive with enriched air up to 40% oxygen content. This certification is widely recognized and opens up new opportunities for safer and more flexible diving adventures, making it a valuable addition to the skill set of any avid diver.
