PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Instructor Course
Become a Nitrox Specialty Course Instructor on Koh Tao
Student divers often comment on how quickly their dive went and ask why they had to finish their dive when they still had air left in their cylinder.
As a PADI Specialty Instructor you know the time is right for them to take the next step to extend their dive limits and become Enriched Air Nitrox divers.
The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Instructor specialty course will show you how to teach your students to use Enriched Air Nitrox for no stop recreational diving with an enriched air compatible dive computer.
