The Diving Adelaide Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty Course will prepare you to safely and confidently dive on enriched air (up to 40%) and it will teach you how to take full advantage of the many advantages that diving on Nitrox has to offer! You will learn important things about diving on enriched gas mixes, such as the facts that mixes with a higher oxygen percentage get toxic at certain depths and that because there is less nitrogen in your mix, your body absorbs less nitrogen and your no decompression limits increase! Scary terms like CNS Convulsion and PPO2 will be explained, so you will get a good understanding of how to make longer dives or dive safer on enriched air!

The Enriched Air Diver Course schedule is very short:
Home study (1 – 2 hrs): You can pick up your manual from the store the weekend before the course, which takes you about 1 – 2 hours to go through.
Thursday evening 6:00PM – 9:00PM: Theory night + practical (gas analysing plus a look at a nitrox filling station)

What you need to know before you start the course:
– To participate in this course, you have to complete 1 to 2 hours of home study
– You have to be certified as an Open Water Diver or above to participate in this course
– This is a “theory only” course, there are no dives involved in the course
– Make sure you have eaten something before you attend the theory night, as the theory session will most likely take about 2½ – 3½ hours (depending on number of students)
– A minimum age of 12 years applies. Every student under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or a guardian sign a consent form (available from the dive centre).

Also please make sure that you schedule enough time to complete your home study, as it takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. The theory night includes an exam, which will be easy to pass after going through the theory.

Thursday night 6:00 – 9:00PM: Time to dive into the theory together and explore the many advantages of diving on Enriched Air Nitrox (EanX)

Now that you have completed your home study, we will have a look at the theory together. We will fill out the necessary paperwork, the theory will be explained and we will have a look at some enriched air cylinders that we will analyse to check the oxygen percentage of the enriched air in the cylinders.

Things to bring:

  • A full stomach and something to drink. As the evening can run until about 10:00PM, make sure that you have eaten something and bring a bottle of water or something else to drink.

FAQ: Will I need to bring any gear myself (for example mask, snorkel and fins)? No, as this is a “theory only” course, you will not need to bring (or hire) any dive gear.

FAQ: Where will I be able to dive with my certification? Any dive centre around the world will recognise your PADI enriched air certification card and will allow you to dive on Enriched Air Nitrox (up to 40%) with them. PADI is the largest certification agency in the world with more than 6000 dive centres. Even if you dive with a non-PADI dive centre, they will still recognise your certification.
