enriched air diver

Enriched Air Diver (Dry Course)

The SSI Enriched Air Nitrox program will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen. 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 32% or 40% certification after completing this program.

With oxygen enriched air, scuba divers can enjoy longer dive times and shorter surface interval times between dives. This qualification is essentialfor dive holidays such as a Redsea Safari where repetitive dives are done over multiple days. This is the most popular speciality course taught in the world.
