PADI Oxygen Instructors in Khao Lak, Thailand December 2011

As part of my IDC courses I like to teach the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course but at Instructor level. Yesterday it was time to teach this course in Khao Lak.

The reason why I like to teach this course is to increase knowledge about providing oxygen, how to set up the oxygen unit and at what flow rates oxygen should be delivered in case a dive accident occurs. This is important, since being able to deliver 100% oxygen or the highest percentage available is one of the most important things to be able to do in case of potential diving accidents occur.

Setting up the oxygen delivery unit, one of the skills in the course, great team work with Jeff, Kelli and Rewi in full swing

It's a course I really enjoy teaching, because of the importance I place on being able to supply oxygen and the other reason is also that being a volunteer at the local hyperbaric chamber on Koh Samui I'm aware of the need to know about the issues at hand.

If you're interested in knowing about the PADI Oxygen courses I teach or about the PADI IDC's I teach, look at my schedule or contact me if you have any questions.
