The PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course is the perfect addition to your training regimen. Not only is it helpful for yourself, but you’re actively becoming a better buddy and person by being able to help. This course is extremely accessible, even to people who have just started diving, and you can breathe easy knowing that you’re capable of recognizing scuba diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen.

The Course

This PADI specialty course is focused on teaching students about dive injuries, the different kinds of emergency oxygen equipment, and safety considerations when using that equipment. Practice makes perfect, which is why you and your instructor will carefully go over how to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment, how to deploy a non-rebreather mask and a demand inhalator valve on a breathing diver, and how to use a pocket mask on a nonbreathing diver. This course does not require any diving, which makes it the perfect course to do in the cold Montreal winter while you wait for diving season, or for your next vacation.

At Total Diving, we recommend every diver purchase a Pocket Rescue Mask to keep in your dive kit or just in your car for emergencies. Otherwise, we bring the oxygen and the other equipment!


The Emergency Oxygen Provider course does not have any prerequisites! Anybody of any age or diving level can sign up. This means that even if you’ve only done your Discover Scuba Diving, or if you’re just thinking about Open Water, you can participate in this specialty course! Divers, snorkelers, lifeguards, boat crew and more will benefit from this kind of training.

Essential courses can be seen as a chore, but thanks to the wonderful Irene Marcoux the course was delivered in way that balanced solid training with memorable explanations based on her experiences. Enjoyable and educational, and it might help you save someone's life or at least manage the effects of DCI.
