Emergency Oxygen Provider

At AquaMunkee Scuba, we offer the Emergency Oxygen Provider course to allow divers to help fellow divers in need.

This course is offered for certification as a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider and also as a Divers Alert Network (DAN) Emergency Oxygen Provider - the training is the same, and for an additional $25 you can purchase both certifications as part of your training.

The safety training in this course complements the PADI Rescue Diver course very well, giving Rescue Divers additional opportunities to provide critical care in diving related emergencies.

Breathe easy—knowing that you know how to recognize illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Being the best buddy you can be means being prepared – especially in a time of need.

Emergency Oxygen Provider Prerequisites

Though suited for divers, this course 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.

There is no minimum age and there are no prerequisites.

Emergency Oxygen Provider Course Details

Through a combination of independent study and skill practice with an instructor, you’ll build the confidence and skills to provide emergency oxygen.

The Emergency Oxygen Provider Course consists of 2 phases:

  1. Knowledge Development
  2. Classroom and Hands-On Training

These phases are detailed in the sections below.

Emergency Oxygen Skills

1. Knowledge Development

The 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.

The care-at-a-glance card is a quick reference guide to pack in your gear bag and review in case of an emergency.

Both your manual and the quick-reference card are included in the course price
