The PADI Enriched Air Diver Course with AQUASUB SCUBA DIVING CENTRE

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course, also known as the Nitrox course, is designed to provide divers with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely plan and execute dives using enriched air, or a higher percentage of oxygen in the breathing gas than what is found in normal air.

During the course, you will learn about the benefits and potential hazards of using enriched air, as well as how to properly analyze and label nitrox cylinders, and how to plan and execute dives using nitrox. You will also learn about the special considerations and procedures for using nitrox, such as adjusting dive tables and monitoring oxygen exposure.

To enroll in the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, you must have a minimum of the PADI Open Water Diver certification or equivalent, and be at least 12 years old. The course typically includes both classroom and practical sessions, and culminates in several open water dives where you will apply the knowledge and skills you have learned while using nitrox.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is an excellent opportunity for divers who want to extend their bottom time and reduce the risks of decompression sickness. However, it is important to remember that using nitrox requires additional knowledge and skills to use safely, and should only be attempted by divers who are properly trained and prepared.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.

Course Overview

Enriched 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 online learning you'll apply the knowledge you've learned by practicing procedures for obtaining and analyzing enriched air with your PADI Instructor. You also have the option of completing two open water enriched air dives. This certification counts towards the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating. At Aquasub, the course fee not only covers your online training, assessments and certification card but it includes the practical training fees as well.

What You Learn

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 analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
  • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
