Course Description

Our most popular and in-demand specialty course!

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is Aquaventure’s most popular specialty scuba course. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox reduces your nitrogen load, especially on repetitive dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.

If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course.

During this one-hour practical assessment, your instructor will:

  • Review the information you completed online
  • Teach you how to analyze a Nitrox cylinder
  • Work with you to complete your PADI online certification form
  • Review your dive computer and explain FO2 and PO2 settings
  • You will complete a short test

What do I need?

You’ll need a few hours at home to complete the eLearning component of the course.

After your independent study, you’ll learn how to analyze a tank, fill out an enriched air log, and set your dive computer for nitrox. This will take less than two hours and will take place at the Aquaventure Scuba & Travel store.

Class Schedule

The practical assessment for this course is offered every third Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. You can also contact us, and we can set up the assessment for you most days during store hours.

My 11-year-old son and I took the PADI Open Water Diver class through Aquaventure, and we could not be happier with the experience. Erik did a fantastic job educating and coaching us through the entire process.
