PADI Enriched Air Diver

Have you ever wished that you could have gotten more out of your dive for your dollar? Ever wanted to take that third dive trip of the day but felt too exhausted? Want to extend your bottom time on a research dive? Then Nitrox is for you!

The advantages to Enriched Air diving appeal to a wide range of divers. Not only does it increase bottom times, decrease surface intervals and increase safety from decompression sickness, it also reduces post dive fatigue!

The only disadvantage: pay close attention to max depth and bottom time. Every trained diver does that anyway! Nitrox is easy to learn and even easier to use, why not take advantage of Enriched Air and make the most of your dive!


In the classroom potion of the course, you will be exposed to a variety of subject matter related to enriched air diving. Some of the lecture topics will include:

  • Enriched Air Equipment
  • Enriched Air Diving Theory
  • Phisiology and Gas Absorbtion
  • Planning an Enriched Air dive
  • Use of Oxygen Analyzer

Open Water Dives (Optional)

The open water dives give you a chance to apply what you have learned by studying the PADI Enriched Air Diver Manual and during your classroom session. Most of what is practiced in the open water dives involves pre-dive planning and enriched air diving activities.

  • Pre-Dive: Plan dive using RDP; Evaluate conditions.
  • Post-Dive: Calculate repetitive group and oxygen exposure; Evaluate student preformance
