Availability: In Stock

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.

In this class you will learn the benefits and limitations of using Enriched Air.  During the in-person session, you will learn how to identify an enriched air cylinder, how to test the enriched air blend when you are renting a cylinder, how to determine your Maximum Operating Depth (MOD), typical paperwork involved for accepting an enriched air cylinder from a dive shop and take a tour of how we fill our enriched air cylinders at our shop.

The current PADI eLearning standard teaches you how to plan, and dive, using a dive computer.  If you have a dive computer, you should bring yours to class.  If not, we do have dive computers for you to see/use during class. 

If you would like to learn how to use Enriched Air Nitrox Tables, contact the shop for an additional course.
