Nitrox – Enriched Air Course
The Nitrox Diver course is the world’s most popular specialty certification. It can be easily combined with any course or fun dives. In the course, you will learn all about diving with Enriched Air Nitrox. When you breathe a mixture with more oxygen than air, you can typically stay down longer and get back in water quicker for a repetitive dive. Although there is no scientific data to prove it, almost all divers report feeling less tired after Nitrox dives compared to air. We recommend that all divers receive Nitrox training prior to diving with us.
The program only takes a few hours to complete and there are no dives required. One of our instructors will show you the benefits and risks of using Nitrox and how to analyze the content of your tanks. You will receive a course manual and take a short exam once you are ready. If you are interested in diving with mixed gases and how that affects your no decompression times, you are probably ready for Advanced Nitrox or TEC 40.
