PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider
No one wants to see a fellow human being in trouble, especially if that person just happens to be your dive buddy. Being ready to help a fellow diver if ever the need arises by becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider should be at the top of every divers ‘to do’ list.
It will help you breathe easy knowing that you know how to recognise illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Being the best buddy that you can be means being prepared, especially in a time of need.
What will I do?
You will complete half a day of intense first aid and emergency oxygen administration related training. In our fully equipped multi-media classrooms, you will learn step-by-step when and how to provide emergency oxygen. You will also learn about safety considerations and how to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment.
During your programme you will learn how to:
- Recognise diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen
- Identify the various types of oxygen related equipment
- Properly setup equipment
- Administer emergency oxygen
How do I get started?
Just pick your dates if you can and pay your £95 deposit and you will receive your PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider eLearning materials. Don’t worry if you can’t commit to a date straight away. There are plenty scheduled throughout the year and you can get started on the home study as soon as you have received your eLearning login code.
How long will it take?
The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty is a half-day classroom-based programme.
What will I need?
There are no minimum age requirements or prerequisites for taking part in this course. Although the programme is primarily aimed at divers, it is equally applicable to those who are around divers such as boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the programme.
All the materials used on the course are included in the cost.
How much does it cost?
PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider £125
A non-refundable deposit of £95 is required when you book your programme with Aquasport.
Balance of payment is due four weeks prior to the start of your training.
Where can I go from here?
Once you have completed your PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider you have started on a programme of diver awareness and responsibility. A further step would be to complete the Emergency First Response (EFR) and PADI Rescue Diver courses.
Once you have completed five PADI specialties, the PADI Rescue Diver course and have 50 logged dives you hold all the prerequisites for the PADI Master Scuba Diver certification. This is the highest non-professional rating in the PADI system of diver education.
Here at Aquasport all our Instructors hold this level of recreational certification. We recommend that every diver takes this route regardless of their further ambitions as we see it as a commitment to education and a real achievement.
