SDI Computer Nitrox Diver Elearning Course
Longer Bottom Times. Shorter Surface Intervals.
These are among the many benefits of diving Nitrox — a mixture of
nitrogen and oxygen in which the concentration of oxygen is greater than
that found in air. You’ve no doubt heard of Nitrox, probably know
divers who use it. You also know that using Nitrox safely requires
special training and certification.
Traditionally, becoming a Nitrox Diver required long hours in the
classroom, learning how to work obscure formulas and use complex dive
tables. No more. Through SDI’s on-line training program, you can
complete most of the required academic study in the comfort and
convenience of your home or office. And, as with all SDI programs,
you’ll learn to dive Nitrox the modern way, using Nitrox-programmable
dive computers instead of arcane formulas and complicated tables.
When you are done with the self-study portion of the
course, you will meet with your SDI instructor to review your final exam
(academic review)and to take part in a brief, practical application
session. Here you will get hands-on experience with oxygen analyzers and
Nitrox computers. Your instructor may even provide you with the
opportunity to make one or more Nitrox dives.
When you have completed the academic review and practical
application sessions, your SDI Dive Center will order your permanent
certification card. What could be easier? Nitrox opens a world of
possibilities, leading to better, more enjoyable diving. What are you
