PADI Oxygen Provider Course
Are you a diver and do you know how to recognize dive illnesses that are treatable with emergency oxygen? Most boats and diveshops carry emergency oxygen, but do you know how to set up an oxygen unit and administer the oxygen in case you’re the only person present at the moment to help? If not, then the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Course is the perfect course for you!
Sign up for your PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Course today with the friendly and professional PADI diving instructors of Diving Adelaide!
During the PADI Emergency O2 Provider course you learn why, when and how you use oxygen during a diving emergency, in a safe and responsible way.
The Emergency Oxygen Provider schedule is very short:
Home study (1 – 2 hrs): You can pick up your manual from the store before the course. The manual takes you about 1 – 2 hours to go through.
Scheduled Evening 6:00PM – 8:00PM: Theory night + practical (setting up an oxygen unit, setting it on different modes, and taking it apart)
Are you in a hurry to get your Oxygen Provider License?
We run private PADI Oxygen Provider courses where you can pick your own day and time. Cost for a private Oxygen Provider Course is $169 (To start your ADAS Part 1 commercial diving certification, having done the oxygen provision course is a requirement. This PADI course is a quick and easy way to meet this requirement).
What you need to know before you start the course:
- To participate in this course, you have to complete 1 to 2 hours of home study
- This is a “theory only” course, there are no dives involved in the course
- Make sure you have eaten something before you attend the theory night, as the theory session will most likely take about 3 to 4 hrs (depending on number of students)
- A minimum age of 12 years applies. Every student under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or a guardian sign a consent form (available from the dive centre).
Also please make sure that you schedule enough time to complete your home study, as it takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. The theory night includes an exam, which will be easy to pass after going through the theory.
