You will learn why diving with air with a higher oxygen content and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time. You’ll also be introduced to special safety and equipment considerations.
In-Class: in one practical session in the shop, you’ll cover with your instructor:
- Managing oxygen exposure
- Practice analyzing oxygen content in you scuba tank
- Set your dive computer for diving with nitrox
**Optional: add on 2 ocean dives - ask your instructor**
