If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
  • Who should take this course?

    The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air (nitrox), gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives.
    If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enrol in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course. Note that in some regions the minimum age is older than 12 years.

  • What will you learn?

    You will learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations.

    You will also learn the extra planning and awareness required to dive Enriched Air safely.

  • What scuba gear will you use?

    Most modern scuba equipment and dive computers can be used with enriched air up to the 40% recreational limit. Scuba tanks must meet oxygen service standards and be dedicated for use with enriched air. You will practice using oxygen analysers and special cylinder decals, during the practical aspect of the course.
