Specialty - Enriched Air Nitrox
$395.00 incl GST
$249.00 incl GST
The SSI Enriched Air Nitrox program will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen.
As a technical dive centre, it is only natural for Pro Dive Central Coast to offer the SSI Nitrox course. Nowadays, enriched air nitrox (shortened to EANx or Nitrox) is becoming the most popular gas mixture, used in recreational scuba diving.
Taking only half a day to complete, we normally incorporate this specialty into a package with other courses, like the Open Water course or the Advanced Adventurer course.
Just like air, Nitrox is an air mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. However, in a nitrox gas mixture we will increase the oxygen percentage in a mixture to more than 21%, causing it to be “richer”.
Diving with enriched air can increase your no-decompression limits, increase your safety and reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air.
You will earn the SSI Enriched Air Nitrox 40% certification after completing this program.
