This is PADI’s most popular specialty course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time compared to diving on regular air. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives, as you can typically get back to the water sooner and stay down longer. During the course you will learn all the benefits and safety procedures involved when diving on nitrox, including how to plan and manage your dives, track your oxygen exposure throughout the diving day, and how to correctly analyse the contents of your tank.
This Specialty is available both as a diving and non diving course, meaning you can get certified without doing any dives. Siam offers both alternatives so you can choose whether you would like to do the dives or not. The course will only take a full day if you opt to include the 2 dives, or just half a day if you decide to do the course theory only.
You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations.
During a practical session, and two optional (or required) scuba dives, you’ll:
- Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
- Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
- Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
- Techniques for getting more dive time by using enriched air nitrox
- Enriched air scuba diving equipment considerations
