Is it worth getting certified for nitrox ? I won a free e-learning course from SSI.

I do have circulation issues from type-2, which I have reversed. Nitrox seems the way to go. Thanks.

And when you get old....

Ya like me...and full of arthritis, EAN makes a world of difference. Even diving 2 times a day I feel much better at the end of the day. I normally dive 2 days then take a day off so I can move with nominal stiffness and pain. Last year in Bonaire I dove every day but some days only 1 dive. I surpassed what I thought I could do and I’m sure it was due to EAN. I know it’s due to the increased O2. Each year that goes by now my body gets worse until the eventual end of diving. Thanks to EAN the end has been extended.

For free, why not?
It’s a skill you’ll have should the need arise.
maybe it’s all in my mind but I feel better diving nitrox, well enough that its worth the extra money to me.

Most definitely, go for it!

Most definitely.

Personally, I rarely use air, limit usage to short >30 ft dives, 1/2 to 3/4ths of my tanks left filled with 32%, making them usable for about any dive where Nitrox is appropriate. As far as extra cost, consider what other expenses are connected to diving and it makes it not very relevant.

I just replied to original "anonymous" post and it showed up that way as the others did. Never seen that before. I would never start a post that way FtMyersTom

That’s not always helpful either.

I personally do dive with and have no problems with divers who have opinions I disagree with and whose advice I’d never use. Of course, there are different levels of diving, the more difficult, the more I require like minded divers. Call that "elitist" if you like, but I figure it’s my right to be selective, and seriously, I’m not here for advice, I’m here to socialize a little, I seek serious advice only from those I know are very qualified to give it.

Worth it?

Free is as cheap as I’ve seen it anywhere. :)
