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.
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:
Your COJO Instructor will have emergency oxygen units available to use for training and we can help you purchase your own unit for use after the class.
You’ll also need to have a disposable non-rebreather mask to use during practice sessions, which your instructor can help provide.
