The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Manual is an important component of PADI’s Emergency Oxygen training program. 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 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 do not need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
The Emergency First Response certification, which covers CPR and first aid, pairs perfectly with the Emergency Oxygen Provider course. You will also want to be sure to complete your Rescue Diver and Master Scuba Diver rating to be the best-prepared dive buddy around.
