You can typically stay down longer and get back in the water sooner. No wonder many divers choose this as their very first specialty.
PADI Enriched Air Nitrox/EANx Course
Course Length: 1 day
Frequently Asked Questions
Why take the PADI Enriched Air Diver course?
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.
What’s involved in the course?
During the course you will cover techniques for getting more dive time by using enriched air nitrox, enriched air scuba diving equipment considerations, enriched air considerations, including managing oxygen exposure, how to tell what’s in your scuba tank and how to set your dive computer by doing the PADI eLearning course. Then you can come in to the shop at a time that suits to practise analysing cylinders, planning dives and other reviewing safety aspects of enriched air. We can then head out and dive the 2 optional Enriched Air dives with our weekend club dives.
Who can take the course?
To take this course you must have an Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification and be at least 12 years old.
When does the course run?
You can start this course anytime you like as you simply go on-line and learn Enriched Air. Once you have completed the on-line segment, get in touch with us and we will schedule your practical session – and the 2 optional dives if you want them.
Where does the course run?
The course is run regularly though our dive centre. The practical is a short lesson with one of the team.
How do I sign up?
To sign up we need your details and a course deposit of $150 with the balance due on the first day. We’ll order a link for you from PADI including your eLearning and work out a time for your 30min lesson with us following your online course component.
