This is the entry-level certification course for recreational divers wishing to utilize 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 through 40
percent oxygen content.
NO DIVES REQUIRED…But HAPPY TO DIVE…Since entry level nitrox is an informational and academic based course, No Dive required as there are no skills to evaluate in water. Dives are desirable to Help demonstrate advantages of EAN. No direct instructor supervision is required but dives should not be conducted in environments that may exceed the existing skill or depth levels of the student.
The Student will preform following task
Create a simple written dive plan for a nitrox dive to an maximum
operating depth (MOD) calculated with PO₂ between 1.3 and 1.6 Demonstrate correct use of oxygen analyzer
Demonstrate correct cylinder management and labeling in accordance
with local practices and/or regulations
Conduct simple pre-dive briefing
Program nitrox computer, with appropriate oxygen percentage. understand How nitrox cylinder analysis is preformed include: MOD and oxygen
