Are any agencies or shops doing nitrox certifications 100% remotely post-covid? The usual requirement of a dive has always been a bit silly for nitrox.

Hi!

I'm not sure but I imagine most shops would have most of the class remote. It's a short, book/test heavy class, I don't recall doing any dive for it. Have you called up shops and gotten "no's" on this? Likely you'll have to go by a shop to analyze your first nitrox fills anyway, so I'm not sure you can completely avoid any visitation.

Nitrox rocks!

I concur with Yelloweye. Nitrox is a perfect course to do remote! I did mine pre-COVID times all online through SDI. Then just showed up at the shop and proved that I could do the math, no dive required! :)
