This course is designed to teach you the procedures for safe, recreational, no decompression diving using nitrox. You'll learn why diving with air that has a higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations.
The Scuba Doctor offers the PADI Enriched Air Diver Course as:
A bespoke one-on-one course experience, designed for the busy diver/s short on time; needing more confidence in the water; or if you just want to do the course with your own personal Dive Instructor on the dates of your choice.
A two-to-one course, designed for couples/friends wanting to do the course together or fitted to particular date preferences. For those who want to have an instructor almost all to themselves or want a more a more intimate course without the costs of a one-on-one.
This course option will run on a date that suits both divers.
A class of 3-4 students, is the most an economical way of doing the Course and enjoying the experience with other divers. Meet other newbie Dry Suit Divers and allow yourself to continue learning after the course with others at your level while making new diver friends.
This course will be on calendar scheduled date.
Although the course can be conducted with up-to 8 students, this group size is not conducted unless we are approached by a group all wanting to do the training together. We believe unless students have gelled before and are bonded by a current friendship, the course experience with more than 4 students does not permit the instructor to give enough time to individual students needing it to allow well-grounded skills to be learnt in the course duration.
WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE THIS COURSE?
Your PADI Enriched Air Diver Course is one of the most popular training courses after your Open Water and Advanced Open Water. Why? Because scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer, getting back into the water sooner, or feeling less tired after repetitive dives sounds appealing then you shouldn't hesitate to enrol and become an enriched air diver.

The advantages diving Nitrox gives to increase your no stop dive time, so you have longer dives and/or shorter surface intervals, all else being equal and gas supply willing.
Many divers also claim to feel less tired after a dive on nitrox than after a similar dive on air. By reducing a diver's nitrogen absorption, nitrox may also reduce a diver's post-dive exhaustion.
