Emergency Oxygen Provider

PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Course


Be the one ready to help a fellow diver should the need arise by becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider.

The Fun Part

Breathe easy in the knowledge that you know how to recognise illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Being the best buddy you can be means being prepared, especially in a time of need.

What You Learn

You learn how to:

  • Recognise diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen
  • Properly setup emergency oxygen equipment 
  • Administer emergency oxygen to breathing and non-breathing divers

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI's Emergency Oxygen Provider Manual is an important component of the Emergency Oxygen Provider course. Before the course begins you’ll review a step-by-step explanation of when and how to provide emergency oxygen. You’ll also learn about safety considerations, and how to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment. The care-at-a-glance card is a quick reference guide to pack in your kit bag and review in case of an emergency. 


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, although we can combine the course with an Emergency First Response course or refresher programme.

Your Next Adventure

The Emergency First Response certification, which covers CPR and first aid, pairs perfectly with the Emergency Oxygen Provider course. You’ll also want to be sure to complete your Rescue Diver, and the Emergency Oxygen Provider speciality also contributes to your Master Scuba Diver rating!
