PADI Nitrox Enriched Air Specialty Instructor course
MSDT • PADI Nitrox Specialty Instructor course, Koh Tao, Thailand
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course (Nitrox) is the most popular PADI Specialty course in the world and a ‘must have’ certification for any PADI Instructor. Nitrox Specialty Instructors can offer their student divers maximum options, and in doing so great customer service.
By the time every new scuba diver has completed their entry level course they will all have heard of diving on Enriched Air or ‘Nitrox’ as it is commonly referred to. They will want that extra flexibility of longer bottom times, and shorter surface intervals that diving on Nitrox provides.
Stay longer under the water diving around Koh Tao
One of the main reasons for taking the PADI Nitrox Enriched Air Diver Specialty is being able to spend longer under the water and Koh Tao boasts a great selection of dive sites suitable for your scuba divers to extend their limits! Dive sites such as Chumphon pinnacle, Southwest, Hin Wong Pinnacles, Green Rock, White Rock and Sail Rock are all ideal for conducting Nitrox Enriched Air diver training.
This will allow you to guide your students on their first Enriched Air dives as they explore the dive sites over the extended time period that diving on Enriched Air allows.
