Oxygen Provider Training Scenario


The Fun Part

Breathing easily — knowing that you are trained to recognize illnesses treatable by oxygen. Being the best buddy you can be means being prepared – especially in a time of need.

What You Learn

You learn how to:

  • Recognize diving illnesses treatable by oxygen
  • Properly assemble & disassemble equipment 
  • Administer oxygen
  • Safety considerations when providing oxygen


What You Need

GEAR:   No special gear required for this training and there are no dives.

MATERIALS:  The PADI Oxygen Provider Manual is required and the care-at-a-glance card is a quick reference guide, ideal to pack in your gear bag and review in case of an emergency.

PREREQUISITES:  Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and doesn’t include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.

What's Next

  • Emergency First Response certification  --  covers CPR & first aid and pairs perfectly with the Oxygen Provider course.
  • Rescue Diver, and
  • Master Scuba Diver rating  --  to be the best prepared dive buddy around.
