Oxygen administration course

In this oxygen administration course by JFD, candidates will be taught the skills and knowledge to safely administer oxygen to supplement basic life support.

In diving, emergency medical services are often not immediately available. It is therefore important that all members of a dive team are competent in the provision of first aid to ensure diver safety.

As part of this course all candidates will be taught the necessary skills to administer oxygen as part of newly enhanced first aid at work training.

Course objectives

In diving, emergency medical services are often not immediately available, therefore it is important that all members of a dive team are competent in the provision of first aid. Candidates will be taught the necessary skills to administer oxygen as part of newly enhanced first aid at work training.

In December 2014, UK HSE issued a revised offshore diving approved code of practice in which diving contractors have to adhere in UK waters.

Divers who hold the basic first aid at work certificate must now also have an O2 administration certificate. This requirement is effective immediately, however there is a short ‘settling’ period.

Entry requirement

To apply for this course, candidates must hold a valid first aid at work certificate. We can provide first aid at work courses if required.

Certification

On successful completion of the course delegates are given the relevant certification of training. This certificate is valid for 1 year from date of issue. Divers should have satisfactorily completed re-qualification courses before their existing one runs out.

Course duration

2 hours. 

 

Candidates will be taught the skills and knowledge to safely administer oxygen which is needed to supplement basic life support.

Topics include:

  • Re-cap of basic life support skills
  • Cause of hypoxia
  • Importance of oxygen
  • Equipment used in the delivery of oxygen to a casualty
  • Use of the equipment
  • When and how to use oxygen
  • Contraindications to the use of oxygen
