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.
Students may earn the Enriched Air Nitrox certification in combination with the Open Water Diver certification by
completing all the required academic and practical application sessions from the Enriched Air Nitrox program during
their Open Water Diver training.
Students may use nitrox during the in-water training portion of the Open Water Diver program once they have
completed the academic and practical application sessions outlined in the instructor manual for Enriched Air Nitrox.
