PADI EMERGENCY OXYGEN PROVIDER
Emergency Oxygen kits are standard safety equipment at all reputable PADI dive centers, dive resorts, and on most scuba diving boats. Administering pure oxygen to a diver in need could be the best chance of a positive outcome. However, would you know how to recognize illnesses that require oxygen treatment, and could you provide oxygen to your dive buddy in the unlikely event of a scuba diving accident?
PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty Course – £85
The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Course prepares scuba divers, and non-divers to respond with confidence and experience to any situation where administering pure oxygen would be beneficial. 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.

Emergency Oxygen Provider – The Benefits
Oxygen provider students learn valuable skills and knowledge that is the foundation for other medical training programmes, such as the Emergency First Response Primary & Secondary courses, the EFR Care for Children course, the Automated External Defibrillator use (AED), and the PADI Rescue Diver Course.
Emergency First Response - EFR Primary and Secondary Care courses create confidence that encourages you to help others, in the event of a medical emergency. EFR (CPR & First Aid) skills are invaluable techniques for anyone involved in adventure sports, and a certification in CPR and First Aid is required for divers’ enrolled in the PADI Rescue Diver course. Emergency First Response (EFR) is a PADI affiliate that specialises in teaching these lifesaving skills –
and they’re for anyone, not just divers.
EFR Care for Children - The Care for Children course teaches the lay rescuer how to provide emergency care for children (aged 1 to 8 ) and infants less than one year old. The training may include CPR, AED and First Aid, for medical emergencies that children face, preventing common injuries and illnesses in children, and how the emotional aspect of caring for children is different than adults.
Automated External Defibrillator - The AED course represents entry-level training to recognise the warning signs of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and administer first aid using Basic Life Support techniques. Automated External Defibrillator’s can extend the window of opportunity, while rescuers activate the local emergency medical services, (EMS) and/or arrange for evacuation to the nearest appropriate medical facility.
Rescue Diver - Many divers describe the padi rescue course as ‘challenging’ yet extremely ‘rewarding’. The demands of the rescue training lessons is what makes this invaluable experience the most ‘serious’ fun diving, you’ll ever have.
PADI Master Scuba Diver - The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty course can be credited towards the highest rating in recreational diving, the Master Scuba Diver.
