Becoming a Emergency Oxygen Provider you might recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and be prepared to offer aid.
There are no prerequisites or age restrictions 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.

You’ll learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen.
Then you’ll practice:
