Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

Who should take this course?

The PADI Enriched Air 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.

If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course. Note that in some regions the minimum age is older than 12.

What will 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.

How can you start learning now?

Contact DWF (201) 66-SCUBA and let him know that you’d like to sign up for the the PADI Enriched Air Diver course!

We can get you signed up for the eLearning version of this course or we can get you the physical books and video.  Either way learning how to understand tank markings and analyze the air in your tanks are important skills you will be learning in person.

Once we pick a schedule and location for your training I’ll get you your copy (either electronic or physical) of the Enriched Air Diver manual and watch the Enriched Air Diving Video.

What gear will you use?

Most modern scuba equipment and dive computers can be used with enriched air, but your PADI Instructor will let you know if your gear meets manufacturer recommendations and local requirements. However, scuba tanks must meet oxygen service standards and be dedicated for use with enriched air. You’ll practice using oxygen analyzers and special cylinder decals. DWF will explain other equipment you may need to enjoy enriched air diving.

How Long Will It Take?

This course can be completed in a single classroom session. The 2 required dives for this class can be Open Water or simulated in the classroom.
