Be the diver ready to help a fellow diver should the need arise by becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider.
Breathe easy—knowing that you know how to recognise illnesses treatable by providing emergency oxygen. Being the best buddy you can be means being prepared – especially in a time of need.
You learn how to:
Scuba gear is not necessary to take this course.
You will need to obtain your PADI material first, either online (you can buy that here!) or physical material from our dive centre. Before class you will review a step-by-step explanation of when and how to provide emergency oxygen. You will also learn about safety considerations, and how to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment. The care-at-a-glance card is a quick reference guide to pack in your gear bag and review in case of an emergency.
Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and does not include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers eg. boat crews, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You do not require any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
The Emergency First Response Course, which covers CPR and first aid, pairs perfectly with the Emergency Oxygen Provider course. You’ll also want to be sure to complete your Rescue Diver and Master Scuba Diver Rating to be the best prepared dive buddy around.
