Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

(2 dives and 2 days)

There isn't a single reason divers would want to take nitrox course. I can think of three.

  • Extend your range, dive longer staying within recreational dive limits.
  • Reduce your nitrogen load (lessen your risk of decompression sickness)
  • Have more energy after your dives (fatigue is a common side effect of residual nitrogen)

All the specialty courses have the merit of providing divers the training and experience to take on new challenges with more confidence. The Nitrox course is one of the few that are absolute prerequisites to participating fully in the program. This means that you will have acquired credentials admitting you to an exclusive branch of the sport.


  • Certified Open Water Diver
  • Be 15 years of age or older


Sample Schedule

Day 1

  • Course academics (chapter reviews and exam)
  • Student divers to go through the processes of obtaining enriched air from a blending facility, and get a direct overview of how operations blend enriched air nitrox.
  • Student divers analyze enriched air nitrox, confirming cylinder markings and setting enriched air dive computers (if available).

Day 2

  • Student divers plan and make 2 dives using enriched air Nitrox.
