PADI Enriched Air Diver Course

Are you a certified scuba diver looking to enhance your underwater experience? Look no further than the PADI Enriched Air Diver course!

This course is PADI's most popular specialty scuba course, and for a good reason – it allows you to stay underwater longer and get back in the water sooner, giving you more time to enjoy your dive.

The secret is the blend of enriched air, commonly known as ‘nitrox', which give you an increased dive time. By breathing air with higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content, you reduce the risk of decompression sickness and can spend more time underwater.

What Do You Learn in the Nitrox Certification Course?

During the Enriched Air Diver course, you'll learn how to analyze the oxygen content in your tank, manage your oxygen exposure, and set your dive computer for enriched air nitrox diving. You'll also learn about the equipment considerations for diving with enriched air.

The course is mainly theory, with some practical exercises to analyze some tanks. There is a short manual, or e-learning to read to become familiar with the safety and theory of nitrox diving. You then get to experience 2 ocean dives, using this new gas mix to try it out and put what you learned into practice.

Requirements for the PADI Nitrox Course

To take this specialty course, you need to be Open Water Certified, and at least 12 years old.

At DEEP Mexico, we can ensure that your gear meets manufacturer recommendations for using nitrox and will explain any additional equipment you may need.
