The Nitrox course is a great next step after the Open Water Diver certification and is structured in an easy to understand manner by making use of a Nitrox programmable computer. Nitrox as a breathing gas has a lot of benefits for both new and experienced divers including longer bottom times. The course will cover the use of Nitrox mixtures containing 22 to 40% oxygen. The benefits of using Nitrox instead of air include increased safety margins, reduced post dive fatigue, and extended no-decompression times.
