Is one Nitrox course better than the other?: Both cover all the same material but in different ways. If you are someone who likes a classroom environment and the close interaction/support of an instructor, then choose a classroom based course. If you are comfortable with self study and minimal interaction, then the online course might be perfect for you, especially if you have a busy schedule.
What certification level do I need to take this course? You only need an Open Water certification or be a student in an open water scuba diver program. (OW students will complete their certification after their open water dives are completed)
Is there a open water/ pool session?: No, this course is typically done as classroom only. However if the student wish to finish with open water dives on Nitrox with an instructor, that can be arranged at an additional cost.
What do I do with the Enriched Air Diver Manual?: Student in the classroom based course use read the entire manual and complete all the knowledge reviews prior to the class. eLearning students do not receive a paper manual as it is online.
What do I need for Gear?: It is only a classroom course. If you own a dive computer, please bring it and the owners manual with you so you can learn how to program nitrox mixtures into it. Be aware that you need to understand your computer and that you instructor can only assist you as all dive computers are different in their operation.
What are the recommended equipment accessories? Many nitrox divers purchase their own Oxygen analyzers and will have their scuba tanks Oxygen cleaned and labelled for nitrox use
