ENRICHED AIR DIVER (NITROX)                                             

With Nitrox you can extend your bottom time and increase dive safety. If you are not cold and still have air in your tank but your table or dive computer tells you to go up, it's time to buy a thinner suit, smaller tank or do the Nitrox course. Because of the theory involved, it makes this course ideal for PADI eLearning. The program teaches you the use of Enriched air with 22 percent to 40 percent oxygen.

Befor we start.

1. Be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent
2. Be 12 years of age or older.
