Oxygen Administration

Oxygen Administration
Want to learn how to safely administer oxygen?

This one-day course is designed to teach the administration of oxygen as a means on increasing the effectiveness of First Aid treatment of diving accidents. Oxygen treatment takes place on the surface – either on a boat or dry land. This course gives confidence to divers so they can assist with a diving-related injury.
The course concludes with a practical and theory assessment. Only those who pass the assessment will be able to apply for a qualification card.
