Enriched Air Nitrox Diver
Do you want to extend your bottom time, lessen your surface interval, and maximize every dive? Become an Enriched Air Nitrox diver! This course may be taught as a stand-alone program or may be combined with other training programs such as Scuba Diver or Advanced Diver.
During this course, you will learn how to choose the proper blend of Nitrox for your dive profile, determine maximum depth limits for your Nitrox mixture, analyze your breathing mixture, and plan and safely execute each dive. Your instructor will teach you about the physiology of oxygen and nitrogen; advantages, disadvantages, and risks of nitrox; oxygen toxicity; hazards and precautions of handling oxygen; the concept of Equivalent Air Depth; use of EANx with standard Air Dive Tables; common gas mixing procedures; and more.
Requirements: The minimum age for participation is 10 years (Junior EANx certification) or 15 years (EANx certification). Divers must be in good physical condition to enroll in a NAUI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course.
Academics: eLearning (Self-Paced)
- Practical: Analyzing O2 & Configure Dive Computer (1hr)
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.
