PADI Oxygen Provider Course

Be prepared for diving emergencies and learn the skill of oxygen provision!

About the course

$129 – $169

Are you a diver and do you know how to recognise 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! During the PADI Emergency O2 Provider Course you learn why, when and how to use oxygen equipment during a diving emergency in a safe and responsible way!

Tip: 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!

Course Options

If this is your first time signing up for the PADI Oxygen Provider Specialty Course, you will need to complete the PADI eLearning beforehand, which takes approximately 4 hours.

We will then meet at the dive centre for the theory and practical session, which usually takes a maximum of 2 hours depending on group size.

If you have done the course before, simply book in for a refresher course. No theory will need to be completed beforehand, as we will run through a quick theory refresher before the practical part of the course.

Practical Session

You can book in for the practical session at any time that suits you during weekday (Tuesday to Friday) store opening hours.

After you have completed the PADI Oxygen Provider Specialty Course eLearning, it’s time for the practical. We will fill out the necessary paperwork, set up the oxygen kit and run through the standard procedures and several emergency scenarios.

Things to bring:

  • Your PADI elearning results.
Please contact us via email or call us on (08) 8122 5003 to book in your time slot for your course, so we can make sure there is an instructor available for you at your desired time and date.


PADI eLearning®

Where some dive schools still choose to teach the theory side of the learn to dive course in a traditional classroom setting, Diving Adelaide has chosen for the faster, cost-effective way of teaching the theory via online training. To us, the advantages of e-learning are clear:


  • E-learning provides a single experience that accomodates the three disctinct styles of auditory learners, visual learners and kinesthetic learners, allowing for more efficient training.

  • E-learning is self-paced. Advanced learners are allowed to speed through the theory, while others slow their own progress through content, eliminating frustration with themselves, their fellow learners and the course.

  • E-learning has on-demand availability, which allows the student to complete the training conveniently at off-hours or from home (as a student you can log on and off to do parts of the theory as many times as you want) and doesn’t require the student to travel to training location.

  • E-Learning reduces the learning time on average by 40 to 60 percent, which means the overall time that you will be spending on the theory will most likely be only half of the time you would have spent in a classroom setting.

Keen to take the next step? You’re now one step closer to achieving the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating! This rating is achieved by completing your core courses (open water, advanced open water and rescue diver) as well as 5 specialty and completing a minimum of 50 dives!

Most people will have completed their advanced course before taking the emergency oxygen provider specialty course. In that case, we recommend taking the PADI Rescue Diver Course next, which is designed in a way that you can sign up for it straight after your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. The course runs over just 1 weekend (or 2 weekdays)! During the rescue course you will learn how to prevent and handle diving emergencies and become a more competent diver and dive buddy.
