Academic

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.
     

You may be able to get college credit for the PADI Enriched Air Diver course - ask your instructor to learn more.
