PADI Nitrox elearning takes around 3 hours to complete before you arrive in Bali and then there is a quick practical session here in Bali before your first dive. Because the practical session is so short we DO NOT charge for it. You just pay for your dives and we supply you with FREE Nitrox. Elearning is a fun and efficient way to learn. You can start now and work on it whenever you have any free time.
Once you have completed the Nitrox Specialty course you can will be able to take advantage of our FREE nitrox offer – we supply the first two tanks of any diving day with Nitrox fills for FREE. Diving with Nitrox means that you are able to dive for longer before reaching your No-Decompression Limit – this is why the Nitrox course is PADI’s most popular specialty course.
What is Nitrox?
The gas you are breathing now – air! – consists of approximately 21% oxygen, 79% nitrogen. This is what you normally dive with too. Nitrox (also called Enriched Air or EANx) has a higher percentage of oxygen with a corresponding lower percentage of nitrogen. The most common percentages of oxygen are 32% and 36%. The PADI Enriched Air Course qualifies you to dive with up to 40% oxygen.
Why is it so popular?
More dive time for one tank! With higher percentages of oxygen no-decompression limits are longer, because less nitrogen is getting absorbed than if doing the same dive on air. For example a dive to 30m using 36% oxygen allows a bottom time of 35 minutes, compared with only 20 minutes if using air.
What are the concerns?
The biggest concern is the danger of oxygen poisoning (not a problem if diving on air to recreational diving depths). Also, because diving Nitrox generally adds an extra step in the dive planning process, there is a potentially increased risk of miscalculating. Both of these concerns are fully covered on the course.
Do I need any special equipment?
No – you can dive with your usual equipment.
What does the course involve?
Complete the elearning component at home before the start of the course and then there is a short practical session where you learn to analyse your nitrox before the first dive. No dives are actually required for the course itself, but after taking the course we give free Nitrox for at least two dives each day.
