Breathe easy knowing that you know how to recognize illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and doesn’t include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course. You will learn how to recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen, properly setup equipment and administer emergency oxygen. The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course can be completed in 3-4 hours.
PADI Enriched Air Nitrox
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular speciality scuba diving course. Scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater especially on repetitive scuba dives, and your surface interval time in between dives is also reduced.
To enroll in the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, you must be 12 years or older and have a PADI Open Water Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization). You will learn techniques for getting more dive time by using Enriched Air Nitrox, Enriched Air scuba diving equipment considerations, how to manage oxygen exposure, how to tell what’s in your scuba tank and how to set your dive computer.
There are no required dives to gain certification and can be completed in one day. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course can also be combined with other specialities such as the Deep or Wreck Diver specialities.
PADI Deep Diver Speciality
After your first few scuba dives, you soon want to explore a bit deeper. There’s something exciting and mysterious about the depth that attracts divers. The PADI Deep Diver Speciality course can be completed over 2 days and will open up dive opportunities that are inaccessible to others.
The course covers techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 meters. You will also cover deep scuba diving equipment considerations, and gain experience in planning, organizing and making at least four deep dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. As a bonus, you will get to experience the thrill of going where most people cannot. Afterwards you are certified to dive to 40m.
Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why the PADI Deep Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Wreck Diver course.
