What will I teach as a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor?
You will teach your students how to recognise the different conditions of an injured diver in an emergency situation and how to administer oxygen.

The conduct of practical application in this course has no need for scuba diving in training scenarios.
What prerequisites do I need?
Certified and non-certified divers alike may take the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course.
The emphasis of the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course is more aimed toward an emergency scuba diving incident, but the course has no diving prerequisites.
