From giving it a go at the local pool with a “Try Dive” course to receiving an internationally recognised Open Water Certification with PADI, we offer training for all comfort and ability levels.
Air, also known as “nitrox”, is a form of breathing gas that allows divers to extend bottom time and reduce nitrogen loading. It is PADI’s most popular specialty course. PADI Enriched Air Diver Online can be completed in as little as an afternoon. After completing your academics you’ll apply the knowledge you’ve learned by practicing procedures for obtaining and analysing enriched air with your PADI Instructor. This certification counts towards the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.
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 scuba tank.
• Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
