Nitrox Diver

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.


The course is run over 2 half days. The afternoon before your diving, will be spent with your instructor, going through the theory of Nitrox diving. There is a video to watch, some questions to answer with your instructor and a final exam. The following morning is spent diving on Nitrox.
