NITROX DIVER CERTIFICATION
Have you ever dreamed of having longer no-decompression limits to take pictures or explore a wreck? Did you ever want to be safer while diving, lowering the potential risk of decompression sickness? Nitrox is the key to your success! Due to the reduced fraction of nitrogen in your breathing gas, your body will have less work and the desaturation times will be reduced.
“Nitrox” is defined as a mixture of nitrogen to oxygen in which the concentration of oxygen is greater than that found in air. Diving with Nitrox will increase your safety underwater, increase your bottom time, and reduce the fatigue that accumulates with multiple dives. You will learn all the necessary rules for planning dives with Nitrox and using Nitrox in a safe way. An important key point in the entire program is analyzing your own tank prior to any Nitrox dive.
Traditionally, becoming a Nitrox Diver required long hours in the classroom, learning how to work obscure formulas and use complex dive tables. But with Denver Divers, we take a hands-on home study approach, so you learn at your pace and learn with your equipment.
