PADI Nitrox diver
As a diver you will want to spend as much time as you can, whilst enjoying your dive safely. When diving using compressed air the duration for no decompression stop diving will be shorter than if using Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). The science and physiology behind this is covered in depth during the PADI Nitrox diver course.
