Enriched Air Diver

PADI Enriched Air Diver Course Details


Welcome to one of PADI’s most popular specialties – the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. Diving with enriched air nitrox lets you safely  extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means more time underwater – but you need to be  certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills.

Whether you’re into underwater photography or wreck diving, on  vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of  diving at your local dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps  you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.

What do I need to start?


Read the Enriched Air Diver Manual and watch the Enriched Air Diving  video. Stop by The Dive Shop to enroll in the course, get your materials  and start learning. Also available as a PADI online course.  (Nitrox ready dive computer recommended)

What will you learn?


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
  • Plan enriched air dives using tables and dive computers
  • Safely increase your no stop time
  • Certification counts toward the Master Scuba Diver rating
