PADI Enriched Air Diver
Enriched air diving, also known as a Nitrox is a scuba diving technique that involves using a breathing gas mixture with a higher oxygen content than traditional air. While normal air contains approximately 21% oxygen, Nitrox typically consists of oxygen levels ranging from 32% to 40%. This allows you to extend your bottom time and reduce the risk of decompression sickness.
To dive with Nitrox, you need to obtain a Nitrox certification. The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) offers a specialized course called the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. This course teaches divers the necessary skills to plan and conduct Nitrox dives safely. It covers topics such as gas analysis, dive planning, oxygen exposure limits, and equipment considerations. Upon completion of the course, divers receive a Nitrox certification card, allowing them to dive with Nitrox worldwide.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course offers comprehensive training in the procedures, safety protocols, theoretical knowledge, and benefits of no-decompression diving with enriched air containing oxygen levels ranging from 22% to 40%. This course equips you with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure safety during Nitrox diving and provides a thorough understanding of the advantages and potential drawbacks associated with diving on enriched air.
If you find yourself reaching the limits of your bottom time during dives and desire to extend your underwater experience while maintaining safety, the Nitrox course is the ideal solution. By utilizing enriched air, you can effectively prolong your no-decompression limits and enjoy lengthier dives. However, it’s crucial to note that there are certain disadvantages associated with Nitrox diving as well. This is precisely why undertaking the Nitrox course is essential — it equips you with the knowledge and techniques to mitigate any potential risks and make informed decisions underwater.
