As a Nitrox diver, you can increase your bottom times and safety margins, plus shorten your surface intervals - so you can spend more time diving and less time waiting!

In this program, you will learn new skills and increase your diving knowledge whilst learning how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen.

In recreational diving terms, enriched air nitrox (EANx) refers to any nitrogen/oxygen gas mixture with more than the 21 percent oxygen found in normal air. For example, 32 percent and 36 percent oxygen are common; you'll hear them called nitrox 32 (or 36) or EAN32 (or 36). To clearly identify them from air cylinders, tanks filled with EAN are marked with an identifiable tank band at the top, just below the crown. The oxygen mix percentage is written on a label or tag, which is important because the percentage affects your depth limits and no stop dive time.
