Emergency Oxygen Provider

In this course, you will learn the invaluable skill of using oxygen to assist a diver showing signs of decompression illness. This course also teaches you entry-level techniques in the first aid management of aquatic accidents using oxygen. You will learn to recognize signs of decompression sickness, arterial gas embolism and near-drowning, and what action you need to take. The knowledge you gain from this course could save someone's life.

Note: This is a non-diving specialty course that is essential for dive boat operators, resort operators, and dive assistants. Everyone at your facility should take this course. This is also a great course for the family members of divers, even if they do not dive themselves.
