The SSI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver course is SSI’s most popular specialty and it’s easy to see why!

Diving with Nitrox allows you to extend your decompression limit which means more time diving! This is great if you are doing multiple dives per day, planning a live-aboard or a long dive holiday.

With the Nitrox course, we teach you how to analyse Nitrox tanks, set your O2 percentage on your computer and how to dive within your PO2 limits. Diving with Enriched Air (Nitrox) has more considerations including managing oxygen exposure and how to determine what’s in your scuba tank.

If you don’t have time to dive, we can teach Nitrox Diver as a non-diving course for 5,000 THB
