Nitrox Course

Nitrox Banks at Cave Excursions EastA Nitrox class is the starting point for all your mixed gas training and is designed for the beginning diver, while still providing valuable information to the more experienced among us. Nitrox is in some ways just another tool for you to use to increase your enjoyment of our underwater world. This basic course introduces the diver to the benefits of diving with nitrox, and also discusses the hazards and proper procedures for diving to depths of up to 130 feet using EANx (Enriched Air Nitrox). Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to use Nitrox mixtures of up to 40%, enabling you to extend your time underwater marveling at the beautiful underwater scenery.

We will talk about the basic mathematical and scientific principles that are related to the physics and physiology of diving, which when explained are relatively easy for the average diver to grasp. You have probably been introduced to some if not all of these principles during your open water course and we will simply explore them a little deeper! This is the first mixed gas certification available within the TDI curriculum and will provide you with an extremely solid foundation for further technical training. There will be no need for modification of equipment at this level, but it will add flexibility to your dive planning as you learn how valuable of a tool nitrox can be.

You will be required to have the "Understanding Nitrox" manual from TDI, which I can send out to you ahead of time if you’d like and there are no prerequisites for this course, apart from a willingness to have fun while you’re learning! It is highly recommended that the student have their own oxygen analyzer, but I can provide one if needed.

If you have any other questions regarding equipment, training, scheduling or anything else concerning nitrox diving, please feel free to contact me via email, generally I will respond back to you within twenty-four hours.
