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.
What You Learn
You’ll learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen. Then you’ll practice:
Assembling and disassembling emergency oxygen equipment.
Deploying a non-rebreather mask and a demand inhalator valve on a breathing diver.
Using a pocket mask on a non-breathing diver.
Course Price and Duration
The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course takes place over 1 evening.
Being a non diving course, a pocket mask is the only required piece of equipment.
The Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care course is located at the Academy of Scuba dive centre.
The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a fantastic resource for all divers. It is the diving industry’s largest association dedicated to diver safety and provides unrivalled cover when it comes to diving insurance. If you’re travelling and going diving, DAN Membership and Insurance is a must.
