ENRICHED AIR DIVER ONLINE PADI Enriched Air Diver Course Online

The PADI Diving Enriched Air Nitrox

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.



The Fun Part

On your next adventure with us you'll be able to enjoy all of the dives available and potentially get longer bottom times while doing so!

What You Learn

  • Setting your dive computer up to calculate your no decompression limit with different blends of oxygen
  • Planning dives with enriched air
  • How to analyze a cylinder's oxygen content
  • Oxygen safety considerations

No dives are required for this specialty.


  • PADI Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another training organization) or enrolled in PADI Open Water Diver course
  • 12 years or older
  • Complete the required paperwork

The Scuba Gear You Use

Scuba gear is not necessary to take this course. If you own a dive computer, bring it along to learn how to set it up for nitrox. We can also discuss with you the best computers on the market right now that have an Enriched Air Dive mode.


The cost of this course is $215. This includes the training materials via eLearning, certirication processing fees, Zoom session with your instructor to review the concepts, and then a short in-person class to analyze cylinders, and program your dive computer. If you want to get started on the eLearning now you can purchase it here.

Your Next Adventure

Diving with enriched air nitrox benefits all types of diving, but it goes especially well with these specialties:

  • PADI Wreck Diver course – Popular wrecks tend to be deeper, so enriched air nitrox maximizes your exploration time
  • PADI Deep Diver course – The deeper you dive, the shorter your no stop time – but enriched air nitrox increases it, giving your more time at depth
  • PADI Digital Underwater Photographer – Photographers usually like to make several dives so they can get lots of pictures. Enriched air nitrox reduces the amount of residual nitrogen you accumulate, allowing repetitive dives to be longer
  • PADI Master Scuba Diver - The PADI Enriched Air Diver course counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating -- the highest non-professional rating in recreational diving

We'll schedule in-person cylinder analysis on an individual basis.
