The use of oxygen is a reality in diving emergencies. The oxygen provider course allows you to learn the most effective technique of administering oxygen depending on the emergency and the equipment available.
This course meets the requirements of organizations such as CAUS (Canadian Association of Underwater Science) if you are planning on becoming an Scientific Diver Level 1.
The course is only 4 hours long and covers non-rebreather masks, demand valve systems, manually triggered ventillators, bag valve masks, pocket mask use as well as other valuable information on handling oxygen and managing oxygen consumption when emergency services are not readily available.
Course is available on demand. Please email if you are interested in this course.
