Elite Scuba Diver

EANx (Nitrox) – Learn to dive with higher concentrations of oxygen than found normally in air. This allows for longer dive times and reduces the risk of decompression sickness without increasing the need for safety stops. The class will focus on making sure that you get the maximum bottom time while learning how to deal with potential oxygen toxicity.

You will learn how to choose the proper blend of Nitrox for your dive profile, determine maximum depth limits for your Nitrox mixture, analyze your breathing mixture, and plan and safely execute each dive. Your instructor will teach you about the physiology of oxygen and nitrogen; advantages, disadvantages, and risks of nitrox; oxygen toxicity; hazards and precautions of handling oxygen; the concept of Equivalent Air Depth; use of EANx with standard Air Dive Tables; common gas mixing procedures; and more.

After your exam, you can qualify for the Nitrox recognition card, or go ahead and complete two dives to receive your Nitrox Diver certification card. And, your instructor can integrate your Nitrox course into your Scuba Diver course!
