Home Advanced Scuba Diving Courses Computer Nitrox Course

Tired of spending 2 hours on a boat to get to a dive site you can only spend 15 minutes on? Our computer nitrox course will help with that. Once complete, this certification permits you to dive gas mixtures with 22% – 40% oxygen. This provides longer NDL times, safer diving profiles, & helps combat diving fatigue. This class is often paired with our Advanced Adventure Diver class as it counts towards one of your 5 specialty dives. 

What to expect in this course:

While Nitrox seems confusing at first, taking this course will explain how the additional oxygen (which displaces nitrogen) allows you to have longer bottom times (NDLs), safer diving profiles and less fatigue on dives. This course may be fully completed above water as the prerequisites are your online learning & practical tests with measuring the amount of oxygen in scuba cylinders.
