PADI Nitrox Specialty

PADI NITROX SPECIALTY

Extend your bottom times 

Join one of PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course and become a PADI Nitrox Diver, also known as PADI Enriched Air Diver. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air / nitrox gives you shorter surface intervals and more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. It is also common for divers to feel less tired after diving with Nitrox instead of normal air. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become a PADI Nitrox diver!

         

PADI Nitrox Course Itinerary

1 day with or without dives

The PADI Nitrox Specialty takes only one day and can be conducted either as a dry course or include 2 dives with enriched air.  This course can also easily be integrated with any other specialty!

Anytime | During the day prior to the start of your course, you will receive your PADI materials and fill out some paperwork. In your own time during the evening you get started with reading the PADI Nitrox Enriched Air Diver manual and complete the knowledge reviews.

08:30 to 17:30 | Meet your Instructor at the dive centre for the knowledge development section of your  PADI Nitrox course. You will go through your homework and all the question you may have. If you choose the option including the dives you join our afternoon boat for 2 dives or you can choose to dive the next morning.

PREREQUISITES:

MINIMUM AGE 12 YEARS

 To become a PADI Nitrox Enriched Air Diver you need to be 12 years of age or older. Divers aged 10 and 11 can earn some other Specialty Certifications. For younger divers have a look at our youth programs.

OPEN WATER DIVER CERTIFICATION

 To enrol in the PADI Nitrox Specialty course you need to have at least the PADI Open Water certification or equivalent of another training organisation. Don’t forget to bring your certification card with you!

LOGGED DIVES WITHIN THE PAST 12 MONTHS

 In case you wish to go for the course option including 2 dives, please bring your logbook or personal dive computer as proof of your last dive. To ensure your safety underwater any diver who has not been diving for 12 months or longer is required to refresh their scuba skills and dive theory knowledge. We recommend the PADI ReActivate program as it offers great value for money. If you are short on time, we also offer a scuba refresher in the swimming pool which can be done on the same day as the first adventure dives. Contact us for a personalised solution.

NO HEALTH PROBLEMS

 Please read the Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.
