Details

As with all SDI programs, you’ll learn to dive Nitrox the modern way, using a Nitro-programmable dive computer instead of arcane formulas and complicated tables.

EZ Nitrox was developed to introduce even the newest of divers to NITROX Diving

Enroll now to get started with on-line academics which need to be completed before this session.
When you come to the Dive Center we will review the academics and do the practical application session. Here you will get hands-on experience on how to

Analyze: You need to know how to analyze to ensure the proper and safest FO2 for your dive. Label: Know what to and how to properly mark on your cylinder.
Log: Fill out the blenders log to ensure you get the percentages you asked for. +: Program a dive computer for Nitrox Working with an Oxygen analyzer and Dive computer will prepare you to maximize the benefits of Nitrox diving to meet your diving needs.

Pr-registration is required. For more info call[masked]

The SDI OnLine Computer Nitrox course is a great next step after
the Open Water Diver certification and is structured in an easy to understand manner by making use of a Nitrox programmable computer. Nitrox as a breathing gas has a lot of benefits for both new and experienced. The course will cover the use of Nitrox mixtures from 22 to 40 percent oxygen.

The benefits of using Nitrox include
* Increased safety margins
* Reduced post dive fatigue
* Extended no-decompression times

When you have completed the academic review and practical application sessions, we will will process your permanent certification card. What could be easier? Nitrox opens a world of possibilities, leading to better, more enjoyable diving. What are you waiting for?

The greatest benefits of Nitrox are found between 0 and 130 feet, and require just a little more training and experience. Nitrox is another tool for divers to use. It is not designed to replace air. Nitrox is ideal for recreational diving. You can gain a safety advantage OR longer bottom times using Nitrox. In either case, many divers report less fatigue and a sense of well-being after Nitrox dives.
In addition to feeling better after diving, the decrease of of nitrogen accumulation also allows:

Increased safety margins when using dive computers. A significant increase in bottom time no-decompression limits when using Nitrox tables. A reduction of decompression time if the no-decompression limits are exceeded. A reduction of possible decompression illness. Reduces the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis. FAQ's

What is Nitrox?
Nitrox is simply any mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. Air is made up of 21% oxygen and 79% nitrogen. The name "Nitrox" usually refers to oxygen-nitrogen mixtures containing more than 21% oxygen. Other names for this gas are EANx, Enriched Air Nitrox and Safe Air. There are two standard Nitrox mixtures. Nitrox containing 32% oxygen and Nitrox containing 36% oxygen.

Why should I use Nitrox?
The main benefit to diving with Nitrox is the reduced amount of nitrogen in your breathing gas. Less nitrogen means less risk of getting decompression sickness (DCS), or "the bends". Using Nitrox can also extend your bottom time. Because no-decompression limits are based on nitrogen absorption, less nitrogen means more bottom time. Many divers also claim that they feel less fatigued after diving with Nitrox (as compared to diving with air).

Why do I need a Nitrox Course?
Nitrox, like all other breathing gases (including air), has its safe limits at depth so it is very important to know and understand these limits before you make your first Nitrox dive. You will also need a Nitrox Certification card to purchase mixed gases. To fully understand the benefits of using Nitrox it is important to receive proper training. Classroom sessions include information on the theory of diving Nitrox, blending, dive tables, gas analyzing and dive planning. Upon completion you will receive your certification allowing you to use Nitrox for all your diving adventures.

In addition to feeling better after diving, the decrease of of nitrogen accumulation also allows:
- Increased safety margins when using computers.
- A significant increase in bottom time no-decompression limits when using Dive Computer Nitrox plan.
- A reduction of possible decompression illness.
- A reduction of decompression time if the no-decompression limits are exceeded.
- Reduces the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis.

Nitrox Equipment
Most of your regular scuba equipment will work without modification for use with Nitrox. Your regulator, pressure hoses and other equipment will work just fine.
