TDI - Nitrox Diver Course

Nitrox. Almost everyone involved in diving has heard the word. What is it? Who uses it? Is it too technical? How will it benefit me?

The truth is that Nitrox is for everyone and anyone who wishes to benefit from all that Nitrox Diving has to offer. Our TDI Nitrox Diver Course is the finest around due to the program's half day of lecture, broader depth of knowledge and the included, two Nitrox dives.

This is the entry level certification course for recreational divers wishing to utilise Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN) as a breathing gas. The objective of this course is to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for using Nitrox mixes from 22% to 40% oxygen content.

By diving with enriched air rather than standard air you can extend your no-decompression limits. This means more time underwater. For example, if you dive to 15 metres on air, your no decompression limit is 75 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 125 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 50 minutes.

The course includes a TDI Nitrox Student Manual, an attractive TDI zippered bag and our Student Workbook, a half day of lecture, and the use of two filled Nitrox cylinders during your shore/pier Nitrox dives.

During the lecture we review the Pros and Cons of Nitrox, History, Physics, Physiology, Equipment Requirements, Dive Tables, Common Blending Procedures and Proper Dive Planning Procedures, all with respect to safe Nitrox Diving. You also get hands-on skill practice analysing and logging Nitrox cylinders.
