EANx is one of the most popular PADI Speciylity courses

Diving with Enriched Air (Nitrox) became more and more popular over the years. According to PADI it is the Speciality course. The latest offering in the menu of PADI eLearning course options allows divers to complete the knowledge development of the course on their own time at home.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver Course Online follows the same format used in other eLearning courses:

  • Divers complete all knowledge development online: This includes an active slide presentation with supporting voiceover, photos, diagrams and links to associated video clips. Divers will also have access to an online version of the Enriched Air Diver manual after completing the course.
  • As the students proceed through the course, divers complete interactive exercises and the knowledge review. The eLearning system provides assessment, feedback and remediation throughout the course, so student divers will always know how they're doing.
  • After completing all sections of the course, divers have to do an exam and get instant results. The PADI eLearning system scores the exam, provides remediation and - if needed - administers a retest.
  • Once divers finish the online course, they simply print the eLearning Record and bring it to a PADI Dive Center or Resort where they’ll complete a quick review and the practical applications of the course. This includes dive planning, gas analysis, fill procedures, etc. The optional but recommended open water dives can be done after this.

Scuba diving with enriched air delivers more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives. When diving using enriched air, divers can typically stay down longer and get back in to the water sooner. (jdo)
