Immediately recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen and be prepared to offer aid. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions. This course is open to everyone.

Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have and means you’re ready to help others should the need arise. Becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing that you can recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and are prepared to offer aid.

There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this course – it’s open to everyone. Scuba divers, snorkelers and anyone who is around divers – boat crew, lifeguards, etc. – will benefit from having this training.

The Emergency Oxygen Provider Course has two parts:

  • Knowledge Development (you will be given a manual to study, independently prior to the practical class) 
  • 1 x Practical class session where you will learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen. Then you’ll practice:
    • Assembling and disassembling emergency oxygen equipment.
    • Deploying a non-rebreather mask and a demand inhalator valve on a breathing diver.
    • Using a pocket mask on a nonbreathing diver.

The course takes place over 3-4 hours. 

Courses are run on demand. 

Prerequisites:
  • None

Due to the ongoing risk of COVID 19, to ensure our safety and yours, we have changed things around a little here at Dive Wellington. 

Customers must wear a face-covering inside at all times, and keep a 2m distance between other customers and staff where possible.

If travelling for a course/dive club, we will have very limited transport in the Dive Wellington van, but we recommend taking your own private vehicle to the site.

Masks, snorkels and regulators will be soaked in disinfectant after each use to avoid transmission.

As always, if you are unwell or have cold/flu-like symptoms, please stay home and get tested. 

Please help keep everyone safe by following these regulations.
