What does the SSI Enriched Air Nitrox Diving course in Gozo look like?


The SSI Enriched Air Nitrox Diving course is one of the most important courses in your diving career. It will help you dive afer and stay longer at greater depths.

Enriched air is a breathing mixture that has more oxygen and less nitrogen. This makes you feel better and dive safer, because you minimize the chance of decompression sickness.

Our SSI Enriched Air Nitrox Diving course in Gozo consists of a knowledge part and a practical part on land. Diving is not required, although you are of course encouraged to do so.

The knowledge part is based on an accessible digital textbook that you can read on your computer or in an app on your phone. We can make it available to you even before you arrive to give you more time to process the knowledge.

Each chapter of the manual ends with review questions to help you find out if you understand everything you need in order to safely dive on nitrox. Besides, you also have our instructors to discuss the most important issues with you and clarify any doubts in a single lecture. You will learn to plan safe dives with enriched air (nitrox), paying attention to the no-decompression limits, maximum dive depth, and amount of breathing gas. Finally, you’ll take a short exam, which you can do in the app when you are ready.


During a short workshop at the dive centre, you will learn how to properly analyze the gas in the cylinder with a special device, as well as calibrate it to get the most accurate measurement. You will also learn how to change the settings in the dive computer so that it is ready to dive with enriched air nitrox and thus show you longer no-decompression limits.

If you have an extra dive day or dive package with us, we will provide you with one cylinder of nitrox free of charge!

While generally safe, divers should be aware of potential risks such as oxygen toxicity and adhere to exposure limits. These topics are covered on every Enriched Air Nitrox Diving course.
