The Specialty That’s The Most Advantageous To Have

The Specialty That’s The Most Advantageous To Have

There Is One Specialty You Will Teach More Of

That specialty is the PADI Enriched Air Diver, or Nitrox as it’s more commonly referred to these days. It is the specialty you will constantly be asked about by customers and students and it’s a great way to earn a little bit of extra money from your Open Water or Advanced Diver courses, so it’s is essential for prudent instructors to have this instructor specialty.

If you book a Package Deal with Aussie Divers Phuket for your IDC, we throw in Enriched Air Diver specialty training completely free, that is how important it is. Being an instructor without that specialty is a bit like being a one armed baseball player, sure you can do it, but why hamstring yourself?

Remember that the more specialties you can teach, the more you can earn when working as an instructor, the more courses you can sell to your customers and many dive shops and liveaboards will offer commission when you upgrade your divers into specialty courses.

Why Is The Nitrox Specialty So Popular?

That’s a good question, but I think the simple answer is that, the course ‘is super easy’, technically it doesn’t even require you to dive, to complete it you need to analyse a tank of Nitrox, but not dive on it. So again this is another reason why this specialty is great for you as an instructor because it’s a great way to up-sell some more fun diving while on Nitrox so the customer gets the full experience.

For customers as well, diving on a different gas blend is cool, being able to stay deeper for slightly longer is exciting and excitement sells courses and keeps people diving and learning.

It’s Fundamental To Scuba Diving Physics

During your Nitrox specialty training, you will of course be adding to your knowledge of how Nitrox works and why we use it in diving. This knowledge is truly fundamental to scuba diving, understanding the gases involved and what effects they have on a person while diving is essential knowledge for all instructors.

If you are interested in continuing your diving education or are planning on doing technical or cave diving then again this specialty is critical in understanding why you would want to use different gases, the course will also teach you how to explain these concepts to students in simple and easy to understand ways.

Andrew Dahl

After a non-teaching gap of 20 years, I decided to re-certify as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor making me a bit of an unusual PADI IDC student. Having already been an instructor working professionally in the industry many many years ago, I knew that my relationship with my PADI Course Director was vitally important. Given that I have reached the grumpy old man stage of life, I also knew that I needed someone with not just significant dive industry experience but also some life experience. So I booked my Instructor Exams directly with PADI, then came to Phuket to look for the right man and the right PADI 5 star IDC Centre for the j [...]
