Dive Longer, Dive Safer, Dive Nitrox
The RAID Nitrox course is a great option after the Open Water 20 program as it is a prerequisite for the higher level core courses.
Nitrox is regular air enriched with oxygen (up to 40% oxygen from the normal 21%). Diving with a gas such as Nitrox has many benefits including increased bottom times, reduced narcosis, shorter surface intervals, reduced fatigue and larger safety margins.
On the RAID Nitrox course you will learn about dive planning, analysing, handling and labelling for Nitrox along with the limits of diving with increased levels of oxygen in the breathing gas.
The majority of this course is theory based and can be completed online anywhere, anytime. The practical aspect is hands on training prior to diving; the dives have limited requirements apart from enjoyment!
