UWE and Ocean Quest had a request to complete a short notice PADI Enriched Air Course course on Saturday.  So, when I returned from the SMD and the Divemaster training I started up an PADI Enriched Air Course for Eric from Winnipeg.  Go figure, Winterpig lol what can I say!!  So, Eric started off watching the video, and I got the various training aids together.

As one can imagine we need some Enriched Air cylinders so you can do the analysis of the contents.  Once the video was completed we started working on the Knowledge Reviews, and since I like doing everything by hand, I made sure Eric knew and understood how to use the various formula’s to do a second check of everything your dive computer maybe wanting to tell, but I to be sure my computers is correct so I do all the checks manually as well just to ensure safety.  Mine to be exact!

Eric had no problems completing all the skills that were expected so it was off to the 25 question quiz, which he had no problems.  Well done Eric, thanks for selecting Ocean Quest to complete your training needs!!


4 New – PADI Enriched Air Divers

UWE and Ocean Quest is excited to announce that we have 4 new NITROX divers.  Friday night Sophie, Bryce, Douglas and Amy, came on in and worked hard to complete the Computer and Table version of the PADI Enriched Air Diver course.

NITROX Course Ocean Quest

This course is now a dry course, so it was all classroom work.  The theory of NITROX, is very interesting filled with Physics and Physiology  of diving which I think is so very interesting.  All the students did an awesome job, and i have heard Sophie has already been out and used her new found course.

Well done to everyone!!

New Nitrox Divers

UWE would like to congratulate our new Nitrox divers!  To say that our last students were a little long in the tooth when it comes to their diving abilties would be an understatement.  But, with that all being said, everyone easily completed the training, and got a couple of dives in to boot!!  Sadly I missed out on them…but it sounds like they really enjoyed them!!
