The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular speciality scuba course.
Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you less decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If going back and spend more time underwater 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.
You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen gives you more underwater time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional (or required) scuba dives, you will:
Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
1 day or two, after work.
All necessary gear and insurance.
PADI Crewpack: Manual and DVD.
International certification (PADI).
12 years old and Padi Junior Open Water.
