SSI Enriched Air Nitrox Level 2 (40%) Speciality
You no longer have to make a choice between safety and longer dive times as Enriched Air Nitrox is the key. If the No Decompression Limits are the reason that you have to curtail your dives then you need Enriched Air Nitrox. This is SSI's most popular Specialty Program which will teach you everything you need to know about Enriched Air Nitrox (which is often offered free to Enriched Air Nitrox qualified divers on holiday). This program is a prerequisite for those who want to get involved in Technical Diving. As the open water dives are optional this can be a land based course so is ideal for the winter months.
The course covers three elements; academics, practical application and optional open water dives. The academics are completed online using the SSI Online training materials so you can learn at a time convenient to you and at your pace. We then review the academics with you in the Dive Centre. During the practical application you will will learn key skills for requesting and analysing your nitrox mix before progressing to your optional open water dives.
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.
