One of the biggest problems divers run into is that the wanted to stay underwater longer. The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course allows you to do just that! This is because Enriched Air, more commonly known as Nitrox, increases the amount of oxygen in the scuba cylinder, so you absorb less nitrogen, which in turn allows you to stay underwater for longer. Nitrox also makes you feel more energetic after a dive!
To qualify as an Enriched Air Nitrox Diver you must be at least 12 years old and have your PADI Open Water Certification or equivalent. The theory is done online, and then you will simply meet up with us where we show you how to analyse your cylinder and log it, and if you have your own computer we can help show you how to set it to the O2 mix.
You can do the analysis at any of our pools locations, Open Water Locations, or possibly on one of our club trips.
PADI’s eLearning lets you read and watch video about enriched air nitrox on your PC, Mac or tablet in preparation for the practical skills
Analyzer and log sheets for use on the day
