Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox)
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course. Note that in some regions the minimum age is older than 12.
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 you’ll:
- Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
- Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
- Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
We support the two different methods of scuba diving training, traditional and Online.
Traditional (Paper Manual) - $149
This is the first step after signing up and receiving your study materials. You will need to read the Open Water Diver Manual and view a three hour DVD. After you have studied and completed the videos make sure you complete the knowledge reviews for each chapter. You are now ready for the 2-3 hour classroom session, where will go over the the material you studied.
Online - $199
PADI’s Online Training program is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace.

Most modern scuba equipment and dive computers can be used with enriched air, but your PADI Instructor will let you know if your gear meets manufacturer recommendations and local requirements. However, scuba tanks must meet oxygen service standards and be dedicated for use with enriched air. You’ll practice using oxygen analyzers and special cylinder decals.
