An Oxygen Provider course is a must for all serious divers. We strongly advise all divers to undergo training in resuscitation and oxygen provision. In the unlikely event of a diving accident, oxygen administration is highly beneficial, particularly when administered properly by those who know how.
Since oxygen provision courses have become available, significantly more injured divers have benefited from the use of emergency oxygen. Not only are the skills learned extremely valuable in the diving environment, but can be utilised in many other accident and illness scenarios.
The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Manual is an important component of PADI’s Emergency Oxygen training program. Before class, you’ll review a step-by-step explanation of when and how to provide emergency oxygen. You’ll also learn about safety considerations, and how to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment.
Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and doesn’t include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
