Enriched Air Nitrox

The Enriched Air Diver Nitrox course by Scuba Schools International is an entry level course for divers wishing to utilize enriched air nitrox as a breathing gas.

Have you ever dreamed of having longer no-decompression limits to take pictures or explore a wreck? Did you ever want to be safer while diving concerning the potential risk of decompression sickness?

Nitrox is the key. Due to the reduced fraction of nitrogen in your breathing gas, your body will have less work and the desaturation times will be reduced.

The Enriched Air Diver Nitrox Course follows an easy to read and understand Nitrox Workbook and water proof tables for quick on site reference.

There are two main advantages when using Nitrox. Due to the reduced nitrogen content the no decompression time can be extended or – in case of a standard diving profile – the safety can simply be increased. Whether you decide to dive Nitrox exclusively for the increased safety or for both advantages, you can already select in your training.

“Nitrox for free” is a slogan in a lot of resorts. This means that you do not have to pay a surcharge for Nitrox, but all diving operators will want to see a valid Nitrox certificate before you can dive.

In your SSI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver Course you will learn all the necessary rules for planning dives with Nitrox and using Nitrox in a safe way. An important key point in the entire program is analyzing your own tank prior to any Nitrox dive.

We teach also Gas Blender Courses. This is your chance to gain more back ground knowledge or simply want to blend your own Enriched Air Nitrox.

Extend your range even more with our Extended Range Nitrox course and go beyond the no decompression time.
