Duration: 1 day
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is 1 day's training providing recreational divers with the knowledge needed to plan and execute recreational Nitrox dives. It consists of knowledge development, 2 practical application sessions and 2 optional Enriched Air training dives, taken from the boat or shore. We do ask that you complete 1 day's recreational diving before taking this course to check weights, buoyancy and equipment.
By diving with enriched air rather than standard air you can extend your no-decompression limits. This means more time underwater. For example, if you dive to 15 metres/50 feet on air, your no-decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no-decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes.
The PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty certification emphasises the theoretical and operational considerations involved with enriched air diving.
