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.

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 practice analysing cylinders, planning dives and to review safety aspects of enriched air.

To take this course you must have an Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification and be at least 12 years old.
