The Diving Enriched Air Nitrox with ATLANTIC EDGE

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 non-decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.


Among the many things you will learn as part of this program:

  • Techniques for getting more dive time by using enriched air nitrox
  • Enriched air scuba diving equipment considerations
  • Enriched air considerations, including managing oxygen exposure, how to tell what’s in your scuba tank, and how to set your dive computer

Breathing on regulator


Students must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Be certified the Open Water Diver level (or equivalent)
  • Be at least 12 years of age
  • Be able to answer "No" to all questions on the PADI/RSTC Medical History form, or secure a physician’s approval for diving prior to the start of the course

What is Involved?

The course consists of two parts:
  • Independent Study- We'll send you the Enriched Air Manual and Video to complete prior to your Knowledge Review Session. Must be complete prior to showing up for class.
  • Knowledge Review, Exam, and Analyzing Tanks- We'll review the book review and give you a 25 questions multiple choice exam.  Then we'll show you how to analyze what's in your tank. 


Usually during the evening or a weekend day at Atlantic Edge Scuba in Gaithersburg. We do occasionally hold classes in other areas. Check the schedule below. If you don't see a class that fits your schedule let us know and we'll look at setting one up for you.
