PADI Enriched Air Diver Course is designed to qualify recreational divers to use enriched air (“nitrox”) for no stop recreational diving with an enriched air (EANx) compatible dive computer. The program addresses computer-assisted diving while using enriched air with 22 percent to 40 percent oxygen to monitor no stop limits and oxygen exposure.
The Enriched Air Diver Courses allows you to learn how to plan and organize enriched air dives by doing so in hands-on experiences. You will apply the knowledge you gain by reading the PADI Enriched Air Diver Manual followed by practical application sessions in which you will practice the procedures for obtaining and analyzing enriched air. You will then get to complete two dives using the Enriched Air.
